GREENPEACE

In 2013, Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) bowed to pressure from Greenpeace, other NGOs, and its customers, promising to turn off its bulldozers and end its addiction to deforestation. Yet since then, almost 8,000 hectares of forest and peatland has been cleared in two concessions linked to APP and its parent company the Sinar Mas Group.

Here’s what we found: almost 8,000 hectares of forest and peatland has been cleared in two concessions linked to APP and its parent company the Sinar Mas Group since 2013. We put these allegations to APP and Sinar Mas, but the group failed to provide a credible response or to take meaningful action.
