Pekerjaan Kami

To understand supplier practices with regard to its Palm Sustainability Policy, LDC is using Earthworm Foundation’s Tools for Transformation (T4T) system to pioneer a self-assessment process for all its refinery suppliers in Indonesia. Data collected from self-assessment questionnaires will be used to inform supplier engagement and transformation initiatives. Additionally, LDC and Earthworm continue to trace the flow of palm oil to the mill level bi-annually for LDC’s Indonesian refineries and LDC Singapore commercial operations, and monitor grievances raised by NGOs and other stakeholders.
