SUSTAINABILITY

REPORT 2017

WASTE MANAGEMENT

The

Plantation Division

adheres to a

“zero waste” policy by recycling waste

and by-products. At our palm oil mill in

Indonesia, oil mill wastes comprising

Palm Oil Mill Effluent (“POME”) and EFB

are converted into organic fertilizer or

compost which is then applied directly

at oil palm fields as a source of nutrients

and to supplement fertilizer application.

We monitor and treat all effluent and

wastewater before discharging into the

effluent pond. The organic materials in

the effluent and wastewater are broken

down by natural activities of anaerobic

and aerobic bacteria. This process

eliminates the need to add chemicals

before the POME is applied as land and

compost application.

PTNJL has achieved the Green rating,

the second highest level in Indonesia’s

Program

for

Pollution

Control,

Evaluation, and Rating (“PROPER”) in the

manufacturing/agroindustry

category

for three consecutive years. The Green

rating is awarded to businesses/activities

that have displayed environmental

management effort and achieved results

better than those required by regulation.

PTNJL has applied 17,671 MT or 44%

of total EFB produced to the fields to

allow for the slow release of organic

nutrients through decomposition while

conserving soil moisture and improving

soil structure. The remaining 56% or

22,660 MT of EFB were processed into

compost for application to the fields as

well as biomass fuel for the boiler.

The Group continuously

seeks to identify

opportunities to reduce

energy use over time such

as transitioning to LED lights

for our corporate office and

installing solar street lights

at our estates.

Employees are encouraged

to power down computers,

printers and lights in areas

that are not in use.

Switching from paper

cheques to e-payments for

a majority of transactions

which also improves

business efficiency.

Recycling bins are

strategically placed in and

around the Head Office

premises.

Our fax system

automatically images

incoming faxes and archives

them to prevent paper

waste.
