APRIL Appoints KPMG to Audit Sustainable Forest Policy

APRILAsia Pacific Resources International Limited has appointed KPMG Performance Registrar Inc. to assess the implementation of its sustainable forest management policy, the Jakarta Globe reports.

The announcement comes as APRIL has been promoting its sustainable forest management policy.

APRIL revealed plans for a sustainable forest management policy earlier this year — less than two weeks after the Indonesian pulp and paper giant was threatened with expulsion from the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.

After criticism from Greenpeace and other activists that accused APRIL of clearing natural forests across its supply chains in Indonesia, the company pledged to double the size of its forest restoration program to 40,000 hectares and stop clearing forests in areas where no independent conservation assessments had been completed. APRIL also said it will only use plantation fiber by the end of 2019; and will not establish a new pulp mill or pulp line until it achieves plantation fiber self-sufficiency for its long-term sustainability.
