Current Audit
1.6 New Prior evaluation of potential social and environmental impacts that could occur due to the ongoing construction of the new drier area had not been conducted as required by the Tanzanian National Environmental management council (NEMC) under the Environmental Impact Assessment and Audit Regulations 2005. Major
4.6 New Waste water analysis has been conducted for effluent water discharged from the wet mills but it does not include the parameters of grease and oil levels as required by the Standard. In addition, the farms involved are not aware of the waste water discharge rates hence cannot determine the required sampling frequency Minor
1.2 Minor Some of the activities indicated in the action plans for short, medium and long terms did not have records to show that they were functioning adequately. For example, there is a plan to plant trees continuously on the farms however there were no records to show a target to be achieved or how many had been planted already. Current Finding. There are no clear short, medium and long term objectives and goals set to implement the social and environmental programs and action plans set to comply with the standard requirements. The internal management plan largely indicates plans and timelines for infrastructural establishments. In this case, the ongoing implementation of social and environmental programs is not following any set objectives or timelines for completion. Major
1.8 Major APK has identified services providers, however these service providers have not yet committed to complying with the SAN requirements. Also there is no mechanism to evaluate these service providers. Current Finding. APK has identified its service providers and also got them committed to complying with the SAN Standard requirements. However, the company has not put up mechanisms to evaluate these service providers. Minor
5.6 Minor Some workers e.g. security guards work up to 72 hours per week exceeding the national law of 45 hours per week. Current finding. Security and Irrigation personnel at Kahawa Estate were found to work for more than 48 hours in a week e.g. in the month of November 2015, 2 sampled workers in this department were noted to have worked for 84 hours in a week (7 days x 12 hours per day). In addition the said workers worked for 13 continuous days without getting an off day as required by both the national law and the Standard. Minor
6.9 Minor The fuel tank at two bridges garage and fuel at Lyamungo have not been designed, constructed and equipped to reduce the risk of accidents and negative impact to human health and environment. Current finding. The fuel storage facility at two bridges farm does not have a retention wall or bunding to retain fuel from spilling over to the environment in case of spillage. The generator house at Mlama farm also lacks a retention wall to retain oil spillages from flowing to the outside environment. Minor
8.5 New The four APK Estates are using class II chemicals as per WHO classification for example Imidacloprid, acetamiprid, chloropyrifos and Deltamethrin in both coffee and cultivated vegetable crops; however there is no established reduction plan for these products Minor
10.1 Minor Although the types of wastes are identified the sources and quantities have not been estimated to clearly determine methods of disposal. Current finding. Waste disposed in the waste pits at the workers camp in Two bridges farm is not segregated. Biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste is disposed of in the same pit. Minor
