Abstract

A sustainable practices framework in accordance with environmental, economic, and social dimensions is an important constituent of the palm oil milling sub-sector for its effective contribution to the national economy of Malaysia. A major threat to the palm oil mills is the adoption of a lower sustainability practices framework that can result in environmental degradation, low production, prices of crude palm oil (CPO). The main objective is to examine the sustainability practices framework of the palm oil mills in Malaysia, through a comprehensive literature survey. Therefore, the methodology for the framework was studied using public-domain journal articles found through electronic databases. The literature survey encompasses publications dating from 1987 to 2018. The findings reveal that production rates and price of CPO are decreasing, although demand remains high. It suggests a further study of better national sustainable policies and standard for the palm oil mills via a primary survey.
