Socapalm’s sustainable development vision is essentially based on the development of the plantations’ social infrastructure and involvement of social teams in community life.

Plantations participate in “public and private” partnerships. It is an enriching initiative for the various partners. Indeed, it allows for a synergy of expertise, an approach that was hardly foreseeable in the past.

Socapalm’s social commitment is defined in its code of ethics and policies. These documents also highlight its adherence to ethical standards and its compliance with applicable laws.

As a major actor in the development of the regions in which it operates, Socapalm works on a daily basis to improve local living conditions by encouraging respectful and transformative tropical agriculture.

The occupational health and safety system is based on the OHSAS 18001 standard, while the labour and human rights policies are based on the requirements of the SA 8000 standard, as well as the RSPO Principles and Criteria, the ILO conventions and the United Nations (UN) Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Socapalm believes that health is a key component of development. That is why it places disease prevention at the core of its plantations’ health policies. Its medical teams fulfill the following tasks among others:

  • Systematic visit of villages,
  • Sensitization to the major pandemics of Cameroon,
  • Occupational medicine.

Socapalm is firmly committed to freedom of association and non-discrimination, and to prohibiting child forced labour. It is also committed to ensuring fair treatment and decent housing for its employees.
