We’re pleased to share that Halcyon Agri has been rated as the most transparent rubber-producing company globally according to the latest ZSL SPOTT assessment. Halcyon Agri achieved a total score of 77.7%, an 8.2% increase on the previous and inaugural 2019 assessment, and notably higher than the industry average score of 41.2% among 15 major natural rubber companies assessed.

 The SPOTT (Sustainability Policy Transparency Toolkit) assessment framework, developed by international conservation charity ZSL (Zoological Society of London) supports sustainable  production and trade. By annually assessing transparency across sector-specific indicators, SPOTT incentivises the implementation of corporate best practices. 
  • Li Xuetao, CEO of Halcyon Agri, commented: “We are honoured to be recognised as the most transparent natural rubber producer in this important study. We continue to embrace sustainability as one of our key business tenets, and such recognitions validate the efforts and investments that our global team have continuously made in setting the industry example as a sustainable business organisation. As a sustainable natural rubber franchise, we believe that our actions and achievements will inspire meaningful change in the industry.”
  • Lee Chestnutt, CEO of Corrie MacColl Plantations, commented: “Sustainability has always been the core of our business, especially more so in managing our group-wide plantations, where we need to strike a balance between protecting the ecosystem, safeguarding the wellbeing of our people and their families, as well as being profitable. Our sustainability achievements will not be possible without the unwavering support from our partnering NGOs as well as financiers, and we look forward to continued engagement and collaboration in driving positive change in the industry.”

Halcyon Agri’s score reflects the Group’s commitment to the open visibility of sustainability actions. This achievement adds to the list of accolades received over the past six months, including the EcoVadis Gold medal which recognises Halcyon Agri’s responsible conduct in the environment, labour practices, ethics and sustainable procurement. We look forward to further raising our transparency credentials and bolstering industry standards in next year’s assessment.
