We’re pleased to share that Halcyon Agri has been rated as the 2nd most transparent rubber producing company globally, according to a first-of-its-kind study. The research gives Halcyon a score of 69.6% across ESG categories and supply chain assessments, a score that is almost double the industry average of 35% among major natural rubber companies.
The SPOTT (Sustainability Policy Transparency Toolkit) initiative, developed by international conservation charity ZSL (Zoological Society of London), assesses 15 of the most significant natural rubber companies against 120 sector-specific transparency indicators. These indicators concern the public disclosure of each company’s policies, operations and commitments related to environmental, social and governance issues.
Halcyon Agri’s score and high ranking showcases our strong commitment to the open visibility of all sustainability actions not only in our own operations, but also in support of all our suppliers. This includes the zero deforestation policy across our Cameroon plantations, our collaboration with international and local NGOs to create a community-first approach, as well as the HeveaConnect digital marketplace. We look forward to further raising our transparency credentials and bolstering industry standards in next year’s assessment.
