The Malaysian palm oil industry adheres to the 3Ps principle of sustainability: People, Planet and Profit. This balanced approach supports the farmers who grow the fruit and protects the country’s environment, while providing economic stability. Sustainability ensures long-­term safekeeping of this country’s important agricultural crop.

In Malaysia, the palm industry is highly regulated. Oil palm trees are only grown on designated land using Good Agricultural Practices. Smallholders cultivate nearly 40 percent of Malaysia’s palm­planted lands. Wildlife is carefully protected and natural rainforests conserved.
