Define sustainability within IOI

Sustainability Vision

At IOI Corporation Berhad (IOI), we believe in meeting the needs of the present without compromising that of the future generations by:

Committing to protect, rehabilitate and preserve the environment where we live in

Ensuring that the economic, social wellbeing and health of our employees and their families as well as the wider communities are safeguarded

Leading and innovating as well as embedding sustainability practices into our businesses

Sustainability Governance

IOI has developed and will continuously improve upon a systematic approach to sustainability by ensuring sustainability sits at the top agenda of IOI’s management. Additionally, to ensure transparency IOI established a Sustainability Governance structure. This Sustainability Governance structure comprises Board of Directors, Group Sustainability Steering Committee, Sustainability Team, and an external Sustainability Advisory Panel.

Sustainability Advisory Panel (SAP)

The Sustainability Advisory Panel (SAP) supports the roll-out of the Group’s SIP, and advises on specific issues raised by multi-stakeholders such as NGOs and RSPO.

The SAP is composed of NGOs, customers and subject-matter experts and experienced professionals from various countries and sectors as well as representatives from IOI Group senior management.

Going forward, the Panel will advise and challenge the Group on delivering its sustainability commitments and ambition. It will provide a critical review and advisory function to the Group’s sustainability activities and help to review its progress in delivering its sustainability commitments as set out in the SPOP and SIP.
