places of work. Each employee’s profile and identity document

are maintained in our HR data system, and we continuously

monitor compliance with the minimum legal working age

own free will and without coercion. During the year, there has

been no incidence of child or forced labour in the Group.

is subsidised by the company that caters to the needs of the

plantation staff and workers. The provision of these facilities

has enabled women to join PTNJL’s workforce.
