At the heart of Musim Mas’ Sustainability Strategy is our Sustainability Policy. First launched in 2014, the Policy established the framework for our No Deforestation, No Peat, and No Exploitation (NDPE) commitments.

In September 2020, Musim Mas updated the Policy, which lays out a renewed and deepened commitment to improving the livelihoods of smallholders, workers, and communities; while maintaining a strict stance on NDPE. Our Policy applies to Musim Mas’ global operations and the third parties we work with, including suppliers and contractors.

We will continue to improve our sustainability practices and will remain an industry leader in innovation by participating in the continuous improvement of standards, monitoring systems, and applied research. Our progress and efforts are reported transparently through our website and Sustainability Reports.

Key Pillars of Our Policy

The following are the key pillars of our Policy, which rest on the core components of sustainability – people, planet and profit.


Palm oil production above all is a people business: be it the workforce that tends to our plantations or operates our mills and refineries; the hundreds of thousands of smallholders who supply their crop to our mills or those of our suppliers; the local communities and villagers living near operations; the customary rights holders to lands which currently comprise concessions; and those affected by our supply chain. We are committed to respecting human rights, land rights, and labor rights, and will work hard to establish a lasting, positive legacy everywhere we work.


A healthy environment is key for the sustainable production of our raw materials. We are committed to maintaining the ecological integrity of our plantations and surrounding areas, and to mitigate or minimize any adverse impacts of operations on the environment or neighboring communities. Our deep commitment to conservation and preserving biodiversity is long-standing and continues to be one of our priorities.


In order to initiate, support and lead transformation across third party supply-chains and at a landscape level, we depend on likeminded partners from the private and public sector as well as civil society. The end of deforestation and sustainable livelihoods can only be achieved through cooperation and collaboration among these actors.


Innovation is at the heart of our company, and has allowed us to reach a high performance as a producer and processor of palm products. We need to innovate to answer growing demands from civil society, customers, and consumers, to maintain our business under a changing global climate and to adapt to dynamic regulatory frameworks.

Coconut Sourcing Strategy

We have applied our longstanding NDPE commitments to our palm oil business and recognize we must extend it to our coconut oil facility and its supply chain. We have extended the commitments to our processing and refining of coconut oil in 2022, in line with the pledge made in our Sustainability Policy.
