Policy Socialisation Workshop for Apical Suppliers – 11 November, 2015
A Sustainability Policy Socialisation Workshop was jointly organized by Apical, Asian Agri and TFT on 11 November 2015 at Jakarta. This interactive event was attended by 47 participants from 22 main Apical suppliers to explain to them the main commitments in our Sustainability Policy and to get their feedback. The main objective was to influence them to fully comply with our sustainability commitments of No deforestation, No new peat development and to Drive positive socio-economic benefits for people and local communities.
Topics which are relevant to the Apical Sustainability Palm Oil Policy were presented by TFT during the Workshop. The topics discussed were the Aggregator/ Refinery Transformation Plan (ART Plan), High Carbon Stock (HCS), High Conservation Value (HCV), Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) and Labour & Human rights. The requirement to achieve full FFB traceability was also explained to the participants.
We allocated much time during the Workshop to discuss common strengths and challenges in implementing the sustainability commitments and to identify areas for improvement.
