Complementing its own plantation output, the Goldtree palm oil business supports an extensive agricultural community, buying in fruit from over 5,000 outgrowers. It is working on significantly improving the fruit yields and technical skills of these smallholder farmers

while mitigating against environmental risk and dangerous agricultural practices. Goldtree is an ideal example of the sustainable and far-reaching impact of development equity, as embodied in the unique formula of DevEq = PAT * x + i 2™.*
