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.

SMART Social and Environmental Policy

The GAR Social and Environmental Policy (GSEP) is our updated and enhanced sustainability policy. The GSEP integrates and builds on the principles in our previous 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.

In 2011, we launched our Forest Conservation Policy (FCP) followed by the Social and Community Engagement Policy (SCEP) and the Yield Improvement Policy (YIP).

We have taken a multi-stakeholder approach in developing our sustainability policies, collaborating with global non-profit, The Forest Trust (TFT) and consulting with multi-stakeholders.

To implement the GSEP successfully, GAR will continue to engage with other stakeholders to find solutions to existing challenges. These include the Government of Indonesia, civil society organisations, local and indigenous communities, key growers and other stakeholders in the Indonesia palm oil industry.
