Norway's government pension fund announces risk-based divestments; companies invited to respond

Norway's Government Pension Fund Global recently divested its investment from some companies on the basis that they "impose substantial costs on other companies and society as a whole and so are not long-term sustainable."

Four plantation companies were mentioned in a report on the divestment -- the report is linked below. Business & Human Rights Resource invited these companies to respond: Olam International, Halcyon Agri Corp, Sime Darby Plantation, and Sipef. 

Sipef and Olam International responded. Halcyon Agri Corp and Sime Darby Plantation did not.
