“Don’t even try to commit any peat violations. Also, don’t expect any tolerance from the ministry. There will be absolutely no room for compromise in this matter.”
“I have already ordered an end to PT MPK’s operations due to its peat violations. We are currently investigating this case.”
One of the world’s leading global commodity traders is continuing to clear Papua’s intact forests in order to achieve its goal of expanding its palm oil plantation business.
Some major Malaysian palm oil companies are among the biggest buyers from controversial supplier - a company which itself declared that it had ‘busy years ahead’ clearing Papua’s intact forest.
“The purchasing was made by the Astra-KLK company as the joint venture did not know that ANJT had problems. After October, there has been no more purchasing from ANJT.”
“This sanction is still in force and has yet to be lifted. There is still one more condition that has yet to be met by PT RAPP.”
“Astra’s failure to implement its own policy is unacceptable and demonstrates that nice policies are not enough.”
