Our Sustainability Efforts
Our Five Focus Areas in Mewah Sustainability
Sustainability is part of everything we do and building a sustainable business is part of our value proposition. We believe that Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) investing is the right way forward.
Environmental Protection and Stewardship
Environmental protection and stewardship have been a key focus for us for many decades as we strive to optimise productivity and long-term sustainability in our business. We focus our efforts on key areas where our portfolio and business scale allow us to have the biggest impact. This focus area covers our impact on various environmental footprints in terms of 1) Carbon Management 2) Water management 3) Waste management 4) Biodiversity Management 5) Fire management and 6) Pest management. Our efforts in this area help contribute to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 6, 7, 11 and 13 which aim to promote sustainable use of energy and combat climate change & its impacts.
We have initiated several sustainability initiatives aimed at minimizing our manufacturing footprint on various environmental aspects. At our upstream operations, we are also implementing several programs aimed at forest conservation, protecting biodiversity, and minimising adverse impact on the environment.
Responsible Supply Chain
We are committed to the implementation of a responsible and sustainable palm oil supply chain. Transparency in the supply chain is a critical aspect of sustainability since it increases the visibility of suppliers, and it allows us to trace and identify the origin of our raw material.
We have been focusing greatly on supplier engagement initiatives to raise sustainability awareness across our suppliers to make certain that everyone is improved. We are fully aware that a large part of our footprint is contributed by activities beyond our own operations. Therefore, our suppliers are playing an important role in forging a path towards sustainable palm oil production.
We value the input of stakeholders in helping to enhance transparency throughout our supply chain. The Grievance Procedure serves as a platform for stakeholders in our supply chain to address concerns or to report a complaint with regard to violation of our Sustainable Palm Oil Policy implementation.
Product Quality and Safety
Our reputation is founded on delighting our consumers and customers with consistently high product quality that meets their needs and expectations. As such, Product Quality and Safety for our consumers is always our top priority. We ensure ethical practices are adopted across our business operation, we support responsible marketing and advertising of our products and services.
We are committed to comply with all legal and regulatory requirements and through the rigorous application of our Quality Management System. Our factories are certified to quality certifications such as Halal, Kosher, and food safety certifications such as HACCP, FSSC 22000, and GMP+. In addition, our manufacturing sites are certified with multiple sustainability certifications such as RSPO Supply Chain Certification, ISCC Certification and Sedex SMETA Pillar 4.
