Mature oil palms cover 42,237 hectares or 85.5%, of the planted area, while 7,172 hectares or 14.5%, comprises immature oil palms. The average age of our nucleus oil palms across all the Group's plantations, as of December 31, 2022, was 12.9 years.
The remainder of our landbank is either not plantable due to unsuitable topography or is used for fulfilling various voluntary environmental and social commitments, including biodiversity conservation, riverine buffers and the preservation of historical and/or culturally significant sites. The remaining portion of our landbank is designated for infrastructure, such as roads and housing and amenities for our employees.
