Golden Agri-Resources (GAR) is committed to ensure sustainable practices in all of its operations and supply chain. A recent report from RAN alleges that one of our indirect suppliers does not comply with these commitments.
GAR does not buy directly from PT DPL. However one of our suppliers does source from PT DPL. We have engaged intensively with both our supplier and PT DPL on the issue of deforestation from 2017 onwards as detailed in our Grievance List. As of February 2020, PT DPL has issued a moratorium letter for new land clearing and GAR has not detected any new incidents of deforestation.
Regarding the alleged social grievance from the community raised in the RAN report, GAR is verifying this and will need some time to gather the facts on the case. We will update our Grievance list once the verification process is complete.
