Apical, one of the largest exporters of palm oil in Indonesia, continued its long-standing commitment towards creating sustainable and traceable palm oil supply chain by hosting the Apical Shared Value Programme (ASVP) on 20 April in Medan.
As part of Apical efforts to instill sustainability core values and to enhance our support to suppliers and smallholders in Indonesia, we have translated the Apical Sustainability Policy to Bahasa Indonesia.
As a responsible business committed to building a traceable and transparent palm oil supply chain, Apical — one of the largest exporters of palm oil in Indonesia — developed a Shared Value Programme to equip its Riau-based suppliers with the knowledge and good practices to help them gain a competitive edge in meeting global requirements in sustainable palm oil through policy deployment, supply chain mapping, and smallholder engagement.
Greenpeace’s investigative report ‘A Deadly Trade Off’, published 27 September 2016, mentions AAA/Apical’s link with ANJ and TH Plantations which were said to be violating Apical’s sustainability commitments.
On 11 May 2016, Apical and TFT hosted a workshop for Apical’s suppliers in the Jambi region to help them understand how the Sustainability Policy applies to them.
