APP responds to haze accusation

As the haze crisis in Southeast Asia worsened this week, Indonesian paper giant Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) clarified reports that claimed most of the fires on pulpwood concessions are on APP suppliers’ lands, saying that the reports give a “misleading impression of the reality on the ground”.

On Sunday, Singapore newspaper The Straits Times citing data from the World Resources Institute (WRI)’s Global Forest Watch (GFW) Fires online platform, said that more than 400 forest fires had been spotted on pulpwood concessions in Sumatra between September 5 and 12, and that “a majority of the companies are listed as suppliers to Singapore-based Asia Pulp & Paper”.
