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.

The Group Sustainability Steering Committee (SSC) was established to ensure that the Group’s sustainability agenda, commitments and issues are discussed, approved and implemented. The committee oversee the management strategies and processes designed pertaining to the organisation’s social and environmental risks and achieve compliance with social and environmental responsibilities and commitments. The SSC, chaired by the Group Managing Director and Chief Executive, comprises of Independent Non-Executive Director, heads of the operating divisions, Group Head of Sustainability and senior management from group support functions. The SSC meets at least once a year and reports with the Board. Among the items discussed during the meeting including the Company’s sustainability risks & strategy, issues & work plans, implementations and performance targets.

The Sustainability Advisory Panel (SAP) supports the roll-out of the Group’s SIP, advises on specific issues raised by multi-stakeholders such as NGOs, certification bodies like RSPO and MSPO, IOI’s team, etc., via the newly formed Sustainability Consultation Forum (SCF).

The SAP is composed of NGOs, international brands and subject-matter experts and experienced professionals from various countries and sectors as well as representatives from IOI Group senior management while the SCF is a forum set up by IOI, with the Panel as its core members, to gather feedback and perceptions from external stakeholders on selected, complex sustainability issues, as well as bottom-up feedback from IOI’s management and sustainability team.

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, SIP and the SCF.
