SUSTAINABILITY IS AT OUR CORE
Sustainability is core to the values upon which Planting Naturals was founded. To us, sustainability is a business approach to guarantee that our operations work in harmony with the environment, preserve natural resources, support local communities through fair and honest relationships, and create sustainable livelihoods through our community development programs.
We are dedicated to bringing organic agriculture, environmental preservation, positive social impact and profitable growth to palm oil.
We plant forests on our farms, not farms on our forest
Planting Naturals understands and appreciates the enormous threat to human and natural ecosystems as a result of anthropogenic climate change. Therefore, we have chosen to rewild part of our plantations back to natural forest. Using third party certification and science-based targets, these forests will generate carbon credits that will offer our customers a fully traceable and verified path to becoming carbon neutral. We are proud to introduce you to Reforestation Palm Oil.
For us, organic means to work with nature, not against it.
It’s about Organic Agriculture, Community and Africa
The oil palm originates from West Africa. For millennia it has been considered ‘the tree of life’ and used for a wide variety of culinary, medicinal, cosmetic and spiritual purposes. Planting Naturals aims to preserve and enhance the traditional agroforestry systems by working with smallholder farmers in Sierra Leone and to bring their palm oil to the international markets, thereby driving inclusivity, while connecting customers directly to the source.
