Sime Darby

Sime Darby is one of the world’s largest oil palm companies. A recent member of the Earth Institute corporate circle, funds donated by Sime Darby are supporting a program of work related to measuring environmental sustainability, both from the perspective of oil palm and more broadly. Along with colleagues in the Tropical Agriculture and Rural Environment Program, the Earth Institute Center for Environmental Sustainability is investigating Millennium Development Goal 7: ensuring environmental sustainability, to think about appropriate metrics to truly reflect both rural and corporate paths to sustainability. Activities include policy briefs and academic papers on the subject, workshops and on-the-ground research in Millennium Villages and Southeast Asian sites of Sime Darby.
