Sinar Mas is one of the world’s largest natural resource groups. Its empire includes Asia Pulp & Paper (APP), one of the world’s top three producers of pulp and paper, and Golden Agri Resources (GAR), the world’s second largest palm oil plantation company.

Since 2006, Greenpeace has been investigating the group’s impact on Indonesia’s rainforests and carbon-rich peatlands. In 2010, GAR committed to a no deforestation policy, including ending peatland development. By contrast, APP continues its notorious destruction of forests and peatlands.

Here we present our latest evidence, showing how global brands are fuelling climate change and pushing Sumatran tigers towards the brink of extinction because of their trade with APP.
