Leading Sustainably, Living Sustainably
This report, themed ‘Leading Sustainably, Living Sustainably’, demonstrates our commitment to raise our own standards and seek solutions that will help raise the bar across the industry. We drive responsible production beyond our own boundaries in response to climate change and to contribute to a better society. We adopt leading standards and assist our supply chain through the same journey. We uphold our social, cultural, and environmental obligations and go beyond compliance and operational necessities.
This is SDP’s third sustainability report, detailing our sustainability performance and progress for the calendar years 2020 and 2021. Given the timing of this report, we have also incorporated significant 2022 milestones. This report is prepared using the latest Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards. We have also drawn from industry platforms to which we belong and requirements from leading benchmarks and assessment organisations, including the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and the Zoological Society of London’s Sustainability Policy Transparency Toolkit (ZSL SPOTT). This report is intended to be read in conjunction with our Annual Report and sustainability-related disclosure on the Sime Darby Plantation website (upstream and Group) and Sime Darby Oils Dashboard. Moving forward, we will look to further improve our disclosures annually to report on our sustainability progress.
Throughout this report, we have included GRI disclosures under headings or sub-headings formatted as GRI XXX-XX. A TCFD icon appears at the top of relevant sections to indicate topics that highlight our current measures inline with the TCFD framework.

Report Scope And Boundaries
This report covers SDP-owned palm oil businesses;
Our Global Upstream
And Downstream Operations
And Development Arm
Specifically, our upstream operations cover our various subsidiaries in Malaysia, our Minamas operations in Indonesia, and New Britain Palm Oil Limited (NBPOL) operations in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands. Our downstream operations are spread worldwide under the Sime Darby Oils (SDO) banner. The report does not cover our partially-owned businesses. Unless otherwise stated, it also does not cover our non-palm oil commodities, which make up a small segment of our total business. However, should these businesses become material and of interest to our stakeholders, we shall consider reporting in our Sustainability Report moving forward.
Unless otherwise stated, the data presented in this report dates from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2021 and is augmented with historical data where relevant. Data in this report covers all our upstream operations during this reporting period. Downstream operations data is also covered within the scope of this report, except for production and operational data. The report also includes human resource data on people employed at our research centres and satellite offices worldwide.
This report covers the material issues that have the greatest impact on SDP and our stakeholders. We continuously review these topics through stakeholder discussions and the implementation of our sustainability-related strategies and plans.
