The global commodity sector is complex and often dominated by a few major players. In the Indonesian and Malaysian palm oil sector for example, approximately 50% of the oil palm planted areas within are located within the concessions of 30 company groups. It is possible that a few of these companies possess landbank directly or though a series of shadow companies that are not known publicly due to the transparency issues in the industries.

Often there is a lack of transparency in the decision-making and management control of legal entities involved in the production of agricultural commodities. In the context of palm oil, stakeholders have long highlighted how the existence of shadow companies, lack of transparency and accountability in decision making contribute to the unsustainable and non-NDPE compliant practices. In fact, several major oil palm growers are owned by a few discrete entities which have possessions and holdings in other business sectors and industries such as coal mining, pulp and paper, rubber, coconut, etc.

To encourage sustainability transformation in the agricultural sectors, there is a need to make stakeholder engagement targeted to ultimate beneficial owners (UBO).
