Emissions Reduction, Water and Energy

APP’s research and development centres are the focus of our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint across a range of impact areas – notably GHG emissions, waste reduction, water conservation, and energy. We also carry out research aimed at developing faster growing and more robust trees for our plantations, by selective breeding. There is also ongoing research into the carbon sequestration capabilities of plantations.
