FGV is committed to no deforestation, no planting on peat and no exploitation (NDPE). Recognising the potential impact of our industry on the environment, FGV undertakes to adopt the following practices:
- No new planting on peatland regardless of depth
- No development on areas of natural forest, high carbon stock (HCS) or high conservation value (HCV)
- No open burning in all its premises
- No use of agrochemicals categorized as World Health Organization Class 1A or 1B or that are listed by the Stockholm or Rotterdam Conventions
In line with our NDPE commitment, there has been no deforestation and
conversion of peatland in our operations since the adoption of our revised
Group Sustainability Policy (GSP) in 2019.
