Standing Alongside the Community and the Environment

The driving force behind the Natural Palm Group’s operations lies on the intent to see a community become self-sustainable, and the commitment to play a significant role in environmental conservation.

:: Community Development ::

Apart from creating local jobs and a steady flow of income through employment, the Natural Palm Group also supports oil palm plantations and purchases oil palm produce at reasonable prices. In addition, the Company provides knowledge transfer to community members regarding the use of palm clusters for organic fertilizer production and mushroom cultivation, with the aim of providing them with a second source of income. On a continuous basis, the Company contributes to various beneficial community activities – including the provision of student scholarships, the promotion of culture and sports, and the allocation of budgets for public facilities and utilities development.

:: Environmental Friendliness ::

The Natural Palm Group has taken the initiative of using wastewater from its plants in the production of biogas, and the generation of electricity for sale to the Provincial Electricity Authority. This initiative effectively helps reduce the consumption of fuel oil – a precious natural resource of limited availability; lower the emissions of methane and greenhouse gases; eliminate undesirable odours; and mitigate the lack of electricity supply. Focusing on the maximum use of natural resources, the Company has created added value to palm clusters – which is considered production waste – by using them in the production of organic fertilizer and in the development of biomass for power generation at the refinery.

With an environmentally friendly production process that helps reduce energy cost, products of the Natural Palm Group consequently have a very low carbon footprint. Thereby, choosing the Natural Palm Group’s products is a simple way of helping mitigate pollution and global warming.
