Healthy Ecosystems

Challenge: Support and encourage biodiversity and effective land use.

Every crop we grow, or source is embedded in a broader, complex and delicate ecosystem in which change to one factor intended to produce a positive outcome can have negative impacts on others, thereby creating biodiversity risks to the smallest bees and the largest apes and elephants. It's made particularly challenging because most of those crops come from third-parties. Our vision is one of living landscapes where farmers and communities prosper within regenerated ecosystems.

Our Initiatives Include:
  • Our sustainability codes and policies intended to reduce ecosystem risk are in line with international standards (FSC, IFC, and RSPO), and as outlined in the Living Landscapes Policy, they seek a net positive impact
  • We ensure that our own operations use no more productive land than is absolutely necessary
  • We seek partnerships with other organisations to encourage farmers' responsible land use, and provide training on use of pesticides
Goals and Progress:

We report on the goals and targets in the Natural Capital section of our 2020 Annual Report. Updates include:

Protecting Gabon’s Biodiversity

Managing palm plantations in a biodiversity rich country like Gabon requires extensive efforts to support and safeguard the country’s natural heritage.

Olam Palm Gabon (OGP) employs a 100-strong team dedicated to enforcing rigorous standards designed to protect the areas of High Conservation Value (HCV) and High Carbon Stock (HCS) that make up 50% of our concessions.
