A year long Greenpeace International investigation into the world’s third largest paper producer, Asia Pulp & Paper (APP), has uncovered that the company is systematically violating Indonesia’s laws banning the trade in ramin, an internationally protected tree species.
Throughout 2011, many undercover visits were made to APP’s Indah Kiat Perawang mill, Indonesia’s largest pulp mill, where numerous ramin logs were identified, mixed in with other rainforest species waiting to be pulped. Samples were taken from 46 of these logs and were confirmed to be ramin by an internationally recognised expert.
As part of the investigation, major companies have been implicated in APP’s international rainforest scandal. Independent testing of paper products from companies including Xerox, National Geographic and Danone show that they contain Indonesian rainforest fibre.
