Our mission and values commit us to being the leader in sustainable palm oil production by adopting the best industry practices and standards, managing the environment responsibly, creating employment and empowering the communities where we operate, while maximising long-term shareholder value.

Sustainability has always been an integral part of our business and has the full backing of our management and Board. Our sustainability strategy focuses on engaging multi-stakeholders proactively, implementing best practices holistically (covering the environment, community, market place and workplace), benchmarking against industry standards, and reporting our progress in a timely and open manner.

Sustainability Policies

PT SMART Tbk (SMART) led the industry in being the first palm oil producer to establish a zero burning policy in 1997, ahead of the Indonesian government, which subsequently established the same policy in 1999. Since February 2010, we have also made an important decision not to develop on any peat land regardless of depth even though the Government of Indonesia allows planting on peat land less than three metres deep.

A major feature of our policy development in 2011 has been the launch of our Forest Conservation Policy (FCP) in February 2011. To build on the FCP and as part of SMART's holistic approach towards sustainability, we launched a Social and Community Engagement Policy (SCEP) in November 2011 and a Yield Improvement Policy (YIP) in February 2012.

We have taken a multi-stakeholder approach in developing the FCP, SCEP and YIP, collaborating with global non-profit, The Forest Trust (TFT) and also consulting the Government of Indonesia, local stakeholders and NGOs such as Greenpeace. To be successful in implementing these policies, SMART needs to engage with other stakeholders to find solutions to the existing challenges. We will continue to engage the Government of Indonesia, civil society organisations, local and indigenous communities, key growers and other stakeholders in the Indonesia palm oil industry.

SMART is focused on playing a leading role in developing a strong multi-platform to find solutions to conserve the forests, create much needed employment and ensure long-term sustainable growth of the palm oil industry which is a vital part of the Indonesian economy.
