HSBC has issued sustainability-linked financing to PT. Synergy Oil Nusantara (PT.SON), IFFCO's major business unit in Oils & Fats, located in Indonesia. PT Bank HSBC Indonesia converted PTSON's existing USD 67 million conventional trade finance facility into a Sustainability linked Trade Finance (SLTF) and HSBC Amanah Malaysia, converted PTSON's USD 33 million off-shore term financing into a Sustainability Linked Facility (SLF). This first of its kind transaction for HSBC and IFFCO will support us in ensuring sustainable sourcing of palm oil materials and transparency of our palm supply chain.

Question

Provide a clear breakdown of the targets you set to achieve through your project, including reference to the impact you expected on your organisation and any external party.

Answer IFFCO

Increasing sourcing of sustainable palm oil certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (https://www.rspo.org) and traceability of palm oil to plantation are the parameters tied to the sustainability-linked finance mechanism. The RSPO has developed a set of criteria which help to minimize the negative environmental and social impact from the palm oil production. Traceability enables us to monitor how our palm materials are produced and where they come from. It is a pre-requisite to measure percentage of deforestation-free and peat-compliant palm materials in our supply chain.

Impacts & results: Extent to which details are provided on how the project has benefitted the sustainability realm as well as the organisation, team & the stakeholders

Question

Provide details on how your project has benefitted the sustainability realm as well as your organisation and its suppliers?

Answer IFFCO

IFFCO's business is broadly segmented as: Impulse Foods, Culinary, Oils & Fats and Beauty, Agri Business, Packaging, and Sales & Distribution. Palm oil is one of the raw materials in Oils & Fats business segment besides olive, soybean, sunflower and rapeseed oil. We are committed to increase sourcing of RSPO certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO) and rewards the suppliers by providing premium prices. Through the sustainability-linked mechanism, trade finance for CSPO procurement will get reduction on interest; thus, the project acts as investment-sharing between IFFCO and HSBC in promoting and rewarding CSPO production by the suppliers. In their latest report (https://wwfint.awsassets.panda.org/downloads/executive_summary_.pdf), WWF describes the benefits from sourcing CSPO including protection of forests, reduce GHG emissions and ensure better working conditions for millions of workers.

Question

How does this project fit within your overall sustainability goals and ambitions?

Answer IFFCO

IFFCO has set 10 (ten) focused sustainability programs. The project fits in our Forest Program that aims to increase share of CSPO and to partner with suppliers to deliver deforestation-free palm oil. The project also supports us in delivering SDG 12 and 15 goals (as per Sustainalytics assessment)

Answer Ali Bin Ali Beverages

ABA Beverages launched a sustainable packaging initiative for bottle productions in July this year. It is now working to reduce the grammage of plastic, also known as PET or polyethylene Terephthalate, to create lighter weight bottles. Light-weighting bottles or preforms (the form of a bottle before it is blown into its regular shape) helps reduce the environmental impact of production processes and create a more sustainable packing option. The moves aligns with PepsiCo’s international standards and Sustainability Plans. Since the launch of this Project, ABA Beverages worked closely with their suppliers and were able to reduce the weight of the 330ml Aquafina water bottle by 0.9 gram, without compromising the Integrity of the bottle and the Quality of the Product. In parallel ABA Beverages has launched, in September, 2022, another light weighting program with preforms being used for 1.25L Carbonated Soft Drinks. The reduction of PET in this case is 3 grams / preform. The anticipated reduction in usage of PET will be around 320 to 330 MT per annum.
