Socfin joins the Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber (GPSNR)

Socfin Group, having rubber and oil palm plantations, both in Africa and in Asia, has decided to join as a founding member the Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber (GPSNR) which will be launched in Singapore on 25th October 2018.

Socfin, which released its Responsible Management Policy in March 2017, is keen to have for rubber a standardized approach to sustainability issues and is convinced that the 12 Sustainable Natural Rubber Principles of the GPSNR will set the right standards across the whole Natural Rubber supply Chain.

The GPSNR will work to harmonize standards to improve respect for human rights, prevent land-grabbing and deforestation, protect biodiversity and water resources, improve yields, and increase supply chain transparency and traceability.
