Availability of Religious and Cultural Choice for each Community

Certified farms are good neighbors. They relate in positive ways with neighbors, surrounding communities and local interest groups. The farms periodically inform the surrounding communities, neighbors and interest groups about their activities and plans, and they consult with interested parties about changes on farms that could have potential impacts on the social and environmental well-being of surrounding communities. Certified farms contribute to local economic development through training and employment and try to prevent negative impacts on the areas, activities or services that are important for local populations.

The farm must respect areas and activities that are important to the community socially, culturally, biologically, environmentally and religiously.
The Company further commits to:
Ensuring that The Company has a legitimate right to land use and tenure.
The Company provides support for associated smallholders through a model Kemitraan program that equitably shares company-based management, innovations and technologies, and meets or exceeds government-mandated requirements.
Maintaining communications with local communities and robust procedures for hearing and addressing grievances.
Always taking the interests, needs and cultural values of local peoples into account, noting how they may be affected by farm management activities, especially new developments.
Contributing to the protection and conservation of community natural resources, collaborating with the development of the local economy, and contributing fairly towards the construction and maintenance of shared infrastructure.
The existence of the activities associated with the local community (financial aid, providing contract of employment, education, health, sports, religious, etc.)

The farm must help with local environmental education efforts and must support and collaborate with local research in areas related to this standard.
