Palm oil giants unite to tackle human rights challenges in Indonesia

In a major collaborative effort to address persistent labour rights issues in Indonesia’s palm oil sector, five industry giants have jointly announced two new pilot projects that seek to change practices around casual labour and improve conditions for women workers.

Golden Agri Resouces and the other 4 palm oil companies united through the Decent Rural Living Initiative (DRLI), whose concessions span thousands of hectares of land in Indonesia and employ a significant portion of the 5.7 million people that work in the country’s palm oil industry.
