G4B in action

Our long-time association with Seashell Trust enables the business and its employees to help transform the lives of children who are living with complex and severe learning disabilities and their families and we continue to provide funding to help them to thrive in a happy and secure environment.

Working together to deliver palm oil transformation

Securing a long-term sustainable supply of palm oil for our global operations is a priority. We know that we can only meet this significant goal through working collaboratively. Therefore, we continue to work with our NGO partner the Forest Trust (TFT), our suppliers, joint venture partners and other stakeholders to actively support the responsible development of the palm oil supply chain.

Environmental progress

This year we have continued to embed G4B globally within our supply chain and manufacturing processes to reduce carbon, water and waste. Building on our good progress of previous years, we are pleased to confirm that we have once again exceeded our absolute reduction targets in all areas. Water usage was reduced by 16%, carbon footprint was reduced by 9.7% and waste has been reduced by 54%.

Community & Charity

We have a vision of enhancing lives, securing futures.

This vision enables us to make the biggest, most positive impact locally through creating a cohesive corporate programme that is Good4Business, yet unique to the needs of each region.

Across the entire business our regional operations, brands and passionate employees are involved in a mixture of global and local initiatives.

Safety starts with me

The continued health and safety of our employees, contractors and visitors is of critical importance. During the year we have continued to invest in health & safety initiatives across all parts of the business. Each of our operations around the world is now accredited to the international OHSAS18001 safety standard, with one exception which has plans in place to achieve accreditation within the next 18 months. Initiatives like ‘Safety starts with me’ at our Tangerang factory in Indonesia have established a robust safety culture and a pride in the workplace.

Training for modern plantations

To address the palm oil industry’s skills gap, PZ Wilmar started a training programme to equip new university graduates with modern plantation management skills. Recruits go through an intensive six month classroom and field training programme before joining the company at supervisory level. PZ Wilmar has also prioritised infrastructure development, as well as building and maintaining schools and medical facilities to benefit workers and local communities.
