Socapalm is animated by a deep dynamic in which the environment plays a decisive role.
Obtaining of ISO 14001 certification confirms its deep commitment to creating a real culture of eco-responsibility within the Company, but also within the families and environment of employees.
Regular collaborations are developed with WWF.
To this end, a partnership has been concluded with the national forestry development support agency to reforest the plantation and create recreational areas in the villages and schools of the plantations.
In 2020, Socapalm continued the efforts undertaken as part of its RSPO certification process by starting its first certification audits with the Socaport site certified RSPO for the supply chain on December 30th, 2020.
In January and February 2021, certification audits were held at the Mbongo and Mbambou sites, followed by the Eséka site in May 2021 and the Edéa and Dibombari sites in September 2021. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the field audits were postponed, leading to a delay in the planning of Socapalm’s last site, Kienké plantation, scheduled for 2022.
However, the year 2021 is coming to end with the obtention of RSPO certificates for 4 of Socapalm’s sites, namely Eséka, Socaport, Mbongo and Mbambou.
