New oil palm plantations are the leading cause of forest conversion and carbon emissions, so we are committed to achieving an optimal balance between social development, conservation and agriculture.
Since 2013, we have upheld our strict no-deforestation commitments. NBPOL continues to be a strong advocate of minimising harmful environmental impacts, maintaining forest preservation, and protecting ecosystems.
