The Siat Group is one of the first RSPO members, joining in 2004. We participated in the development of national interpretations for Ghana, Gabon and Nigeria. This last one was recently approved and we do our utmost so that our subsidiaries in Nigeria can join our subsidiary in Ghana, RSPO certified since 2015 and the first African company able to produce and trade certified products since 2016.
The creation of the Sustainability Department in 2014 has enabled us to move forward, more specifically by formalising and validating various social, environmental and quality commitments.
Each year Siat allocates an important budget to maintain good relations with the communities and to environmental studies, despite the sometimes very low world purchase prices for our products.
We enhance our knowledge and environmental protection by preserving new zones within our concessions each year.
We consider the needs of our clients by modernising and certifying our production units.
We believe in transparency, and therefore our Sustainability report outlines the results and situation as objectively as possible. It reveals the progress made and discusses future developments.
At top level, the Siat Group validated several policies clearly defining its strategy and commitments towards the environment, social development, employee protection and respect of the quality demanded by our customers.
