About APP’s Sustainability Roadmap Vision 2020
On June 5th 2012, Asia Pulp & Paper Group announced its Sustainability Roadmap Vision 2020 for the next decade and beyond, which extends APP’s commitments on further improving environmental performance, biodiversity conservation and protection of community rights. Throughout this process, APP has committed to transparent and regular reporting on its progress against the goals outlined in the Sustainability Roadmap. Key objectives include becoming 100% reliant on plantation fibre by 2015, and having its pulpwood suppliers be 100% Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) certified by 2020.
A cornerstone of the Roadmap is the Responsible Fibre Procurement and Processing Policy (RFPPP) for which operation-wide High Conservation Value (HCV) and traditional and civil rights protection are essential components. This journey that APP has embarked upon reflects an ongoing multistakeholder approach including participation among NGOs, governments, customers and local communities with the aim of achieving our sustainability goals.
