Where Material Impacts Occur

All of our key material topics affect both our internal and external stakeholders to varying degrees. The IndoAgri Board is an ‘Interest Group’ with relevance to all material topics.

Some impacts will be in the past, and our work is to identify the modern day risk and mitigate it, for example deforestation. Some impacts will be quantifiably uncertain, but a precautionary approach is adopted to mitigate the risk, for example child labour.

To manage and improve performance under the ten material topics identified, our sustainability Programmes seek to embed sustainability in our operations and our supply chains. For each material topic we have set targets. Management and performance are guided by our sustainability policies and commitments.
