Genting Plantations


A subsidiary of multinational group Genting Berhad, which operates in sectors including property investment and development of resorts, casinos and cruiseliners. Genting Plantations commenced its operations in 1980 and runs large oil palm plantations and mills in Malaysia and Indonesia. It also operates in the oleochemicals sector producing palm-based products as well as biodiesel, and is investing in biotechnology to improve crop yields. Its operations have not been without controversy, however. A 2021 report from Greenpeace showed that its Globalindo Agung Lestari subsidiary in Indonesia was operating 1,217 ha of oil palm planting within a protected forest.
