Golden Agri-Resources (GAR)
Enhancing Approach to Reporting
Golden Agri-Resources (GAR), the world’s second largest palm oil producer, has worked with Corporate Citizenship for over a decade on their reporting needs. GAR has particularly looked to Corporate Citizenship for support on communicating its sustainability journey in a way that is transparent, meets stakeholders’ needs and tells the company’s unique story in an authentic and balanced way.
Beginning with stakeholder engagement in 2008, we have supported GAR to develop a long-term sustainability strategy and report on its progress. Over the last few years, we have also helped the company respond to the growing number of sustainability indices and ratings. In 2017 and 2021, we conducted comprehensive materiality assessments that have informed the ongoing development future strategy and reporting.
With disclosure requirements increasing, we have supported GAR to report relevant content in a more succinct and digitally friendly landscape format for easier navigation. GAR has also made better use of its website as a key channel communicating sustainability information. In their FY2019 sustainability report, they were able to apply the SASB Standards for the first time.
