Water and chemical management

We regularly monitor air and water quality on all our estates. No effluent is discharged into rivers or water courses. Any water discharged by the Group is below the statutory threshold for biological oxygen demand and chemical oxygen demand.

The Group produces compost from empty bunches, a waste product in its mills.  Using compost reduces the need for inorganic fertilizers and helps the Group in its aim to minimise the use of organic and inorganic chemicals.  We do not use any chemicals listed under the Rotterdam or Stockholm Conventions on any of our estates.
