Indonesia’s rainforest, the home of the Sumatran tiger, must not be destroyed.
Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) is destroying the Sumatran tiger’s remaining habitat just to make disposal tissue and paper products.
Asia Pulp and Paper (APP), the pulp and paper arm of the Sinar Mas group, has its main production base in Indonesia and is responsible for around 40% of that country’s total pulp production. Greenpeace investigations have shown that APP pursues a rainforest-destruction model to feed its operations, even though Indonesia is losing over 1 million hectares of rainforest every year and less than 400 Sumatran tigers remain in the wild.
What you can do
Canadians don’t want to buy products sourced from Indonesian rainforest destruction. And they certainly don’t want products sourced from the destruction of Sumatran tiger habitat. Sign up to receive action alerts on this important rainforest. We have already convinced palm oil producing giant, Golden Agri Resources (GAR), to take steps to reduce their impact on their forests of Indonesia. And more recently APP, pulp and paper giant, published a new “Forest Conservation Policy” which, if implemented, could spell the end of its long and controversial history of rainforest destruction.
Greenpeace will keep exposing companies that do business with rainforest destroyers until the whole sector changes its ways. No matter how they spin it, dealing with notorious rainforest destroyers is bad for business and even worse for the environment.
Act now, before it’s too late.
