Responsible Operation

Indonusa Group has implemented Best Management Practices (BMP) to foster a technical culture that optimizes productivity cost-effectively and efficiently. Complementing this initiative, the Company implements Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), emphasizing a 'safety first' approach for all employees when carrying out operational activities.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Pests and disease control in our oil palm plantation follows Integrated Pest Management (IPM), with a focus on ecological aspects. We prioritize a combination of natural, and biological, methods, resorting to technical measures (biological and chemical) as a final option when natural and biological methods prove ineffective. Natural and biological enemies (predators, parasitoids, and entomopathogens) are utilized to effectively control pest populations, reducing the need for pesticides and minimizing environmental damage risks.

Use of Chemicals for Pest Management

For pesticides, the Company continuously strives to use eco-friendly and natural methods for pest management. The Company reports its annual pesticide use to the Pesticide Commission, as required under the Manpower and Transmigration Office. The Company has established procedures for the use and storage of chemicals for pest management.

Consistency in Fire Prevention

In the oil palm plantation development process, Indonusa Group actively adheres to regulations set by the Indonesian Government, such as the 'no burn' policy and peatland moratorium, to establish a healthy and balanced ecosystem. The Company has implemented a series of concrete measures to uphold these principles. These include using mechanical land clearing techniques without burning and establishing a skilled firefighter team responsible for monitoring and preventing land and forest fires, to ensure a safe and comfortable environment around the oil palm plantation area.

Sustainable Peat Management

One of the plantations of Indonusa Group in East Tanjung Jabung, Jambi, PT Indonusa Agromulia (IAM), is situated on a Peat Hydrological Unit. In managing this plantation operation activities, Indonusa Group implements Best Management Practices (BMP), including:

1. Maintaining groundwater table at 40-60 cm;

2. Implementing water management practices;

3. Providing necessary facilities and infrastructure, including piezometers, water level gauges, and soil subsidence monitoring devices; and

4. Providing complete firefighting facilities and infrastructure in accordance with Minister of Agriculture Regulation No. 5/2018

Reduction of GHG Emission          

Indonusa Group is working to reduce GHG emissions and monitor them using the ISPO Calculator methodology. The calculation output will illustrate the trend of GHG emissions resulting from FFB processing activities. In addition, the Company has also established an SOP for GHG Mitigation, effective from 1 January 2019. These procedures apply to activities involving inventorying, mitigation, management, and control aimed at reducing GHG emissions.
