  • Unilever joins IDH coalition in backing Aceh Tamiang in its bid to become a sustainability leader

    Unilever and IDH have committed a combined investment of over 1.5 million euros to support the district of Aceh Tamiang in its goal to become one of the greenest commodity-producing regions in Indonesia. Last year, stakeholders from Aceh Tamiang established a production, protection and inclusion (PPI) compact. The compact’s three-year program will increase forest protection and reforestation, improve monitoring, support smallholder farmers to increase its sustainable palm oil productivity by 30 percent, and finally to protect an area within the Leuser Ecosystem.

    The Leuser ecosystem is one of the only places in the world where orangutans, elephants, tigers, sun bears and rhinos co-exist in the wild.

This contributes to increased biodiversity while providing alternative income sources for the smallholders.
