New evidence: Sinar Mas - Rainforest and Peatland destruction

Publicatie - 15 april, 2010
Greenpeace has new evidence proving that Sinar Mas continues to destroy peatlands and rainforests, pushing orang-utans closer to the brink of extinction and accelerating climate change.

Most recently, on 4 February 2010, Sinar Mas sent a letter to its stakeholders stating that PT SMART, one of its subsidiaries and a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, would stop clearing on peatlands and in High Conservation Value (HCV) Areasii, following the release of Greenpeace’s December 2009 report Illegal Forest Clearance and RSPO Greenwash: Case studies of Sinar Mas. One of the report’s documented examples of illegal forest clearance features a concession owned by PT Agro Lestari Mandiri (PT ALM) in Ketapang District, West Kalimantan.
