About Sustainability Reporting

Upholding Our Accountability And Transparency

ISF’s commitment to sustainability reporting demonstrates our accountability in reporting our environmental, economic, and social impacts that stem from our business activities. This also addresses our stakeholders on our sustainability performance, be transparent on our risks and opportunities, and most importantly maintaining a progressive record that helps improve our operations and values in all areas.

ISF’s latest Sustainability Report for the calendar year 2020, themed ‘Transformation Through Action’, covers our continued progress towards becoming a leading producer of sustainable specialty oils and fats.

Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is currently the most widely adopted global and multi-stakeholder standard for sustainability reporting. Organisations can project their positive and negative contributions toward sustainable development goals, providing them a greater sense of transparency and accountability. The overall purpose of the GRI is to improve the worldwide comparability and quality of information on environmental and social impacts by organisations.

Our inaugural Sustainability Report follows the latest version of the GRI Standards as updated on 19th May 2020. We aim to establish a Web-Based GRI to provide a more transparent and detailed disclosure of our sustainability efforts and reporting. This can be updated regularly from all of our operations.
