DekelOil is a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and operates in a manner benefiting the environment to the fullest extent possible.
DekelOil's projects are based on existing plantations in Ivory Coast, as well as on plantations that will be cultivated in open areas secured by the company for the purpose of expansion – without the need to cut down rainforests. Furthermore, DekelOil intends to replace existing, low-yielding varieties with higher yielding ones throughout its projects, to supply significantly greater quantities of feedstock from plantations covering the same land area.
To date, over 300 new jobs have been created and it is expected that the development of the Company and its subsidiaries will create many new additional jobs in the future. It is also expected that DekelOil will help to improve existing oil palm yields, enhance the incomes of partner smallholders and cooperative members and accelerate the development of social infrastructure in the local community. The Company's activities will help enhance the lives of more than 6,000 families directly and indirectly.
