Latest news, updates and information on APRIL Group

A key part of our APRIL2030 commitment is to promote economic growth and provide inclusive opportunities for women – and where better to start than right on our doorstep?

BULAT KB is a group of 22 wives of APRIL Group employees who came together to set up a sustainable farm in our Riau Complex in Pangkalan Kerinci.

With support from the company, the women set up the farm a year ago to grow organic vegetables. The produce is sold to local residents to provide them with healthy food, while helping the women supplement the family income.

When the women first approached APRIL Group, the company was happy to help. We provided them with training, equipment, seeds and a plot of land.

Best sellers include organic spinach, long beans, and mustard greens, which are marketed via WhatsApp, which enables customers to pre-order their pick. The ladies can even arrange home delivery.

The proceeds are shared among the women, helping us achieve our APRIL2030 commitment to ensure women’s effective participation and equal opportunities for advancement.

APRIL2030 is our vision for meeting the challenges of the next decade, and is comprised of four commitments with 18 ambitious targets – Climate Positive, Thriving Landscape, Inclusive Progress and Sustainable Growth.
