Annual Report


Water Management

The Group’s businesses are also focused on efficient

water management through, inter alia, reusing water

throughout their operations and rainwater harvesting.

For example,

Food Division’s

PNG subsidiary

identified opportunities to reduce its water consumption

using a variety of approaches including recycling

water, recirculating cooling water, replacing faulty

equipment, and eliminating water leaks. In addition,


Plantation Division

has installed rainwater tanks

at workers’ quarters at our Miri and PTNJL estates

to harvest rainwater to be used for non-drinking

purposes, namely washing and sanitation. Weirs have

also been constructed across the field drains at our

Miri estate to facilitate water retention and maintain

the groundwater table at optimal levels.

Further, the Group’s Indonesian subsidiary, PTNJL

has set aside areas within its plantation as water

catchment zones. Chemical applications are strictly

prohibited at the water catchment zones to facilitate

natural re-vegetation of the areas and preservation


Responsibly Sourced Seafood


Food Division

believes ocean sustainability

is important. The Division’s PNG subsidiary, IFC,

responsibly sources their fish supply to support and

ensure the long term sustainability and conservation

of fish resources. Sustainability and traceability is high

on IFC’s agenda when making purchase decisions.

IFC works closely with their suppliers to ensure that

the tuna they procure and process do not contain

those which are illegal, unreported and unregulated

(“IUU”). During FYE2016, IFC did not incur any IUU-

related violations.
