Environment

With biological resources at the heart of our business and surrounding communities, we value balancing economic development with ecological and social preservation. 

62% NATURAL FOREST

Approximately 68,000 hectares of our concession land will remain non-planted land. This land represents our active role in protecting the unique biospheres that exist in Cameroon and Malaysia. Following the decision to cease and desist from all clearing and felling activities, we have committed to zero deforestation across all our land. This is verified annually by 3rd party satellite imagery.

Community Forest

We have established a legal boundary around 25,000 hectares of land within our Sudcam concession, a land space equal to four times the size of Manhattan Island. Through work with local and international NGOs, and the Cameroon Government, we designated this a Community Forest.

This will permanently protect the land and its ecosystems, whilst ensuring that indigenous communities have continued access to the forest resources. Employment opportunities will be created for local people in the management of the land, strategically governed by the Cameroon Sustainability Council and other specialist agencies.

Responsible Operations

We maximise the efficiency and productivity of our resources whilst minimising waste and emissions. Our investment in renewable energy includes solar power, with our Kelvin Terminals site now capable of producing almost 100% of the electrical energy required to power its operations. Elsewhere, the discharge water and air emissions across our facilities is regularly measured to ensure it is well above the legal compliance limits.

Net Zero

We are launching our roadmap to net zero. This will follow the criteria of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), in line with the Paris Agreement goals. We are partnering with a climate solutions provider on an ambitious carbon mapping programme across our plantations, leading into a decarbonisation strategy.
