Greenpeace responds to APP's latest claims

Organisation says APP statement is 'nothing but PR-driven nonsense'.
Publish date:

The disagreement between APP and Greenpeace is raging on as the organisation has reacted to the paper supplier's most recent claims.

Greenpeace launched a campaign to stop toy manufacturers using APP for their packaging supplies. APP responded last week to the claims that it was responsible for deforestation, saying the claims that its products contain Indonesian rainforest fibre have no scientific basis.

In the most recent statement, a Greenpeace spokesperson has said: "This is nothing but PR-driven nonsense by APP, the world's most notorious rainforest destroyer.

“The company's own documentation confirms that it continues to rely on the use of Indonesian rainforest fibre for use in its mills and products.

“Yet rather than dealing with this issue, APP appears set to continue to destroy Indonesia’s rainforests for throwaway paper products whilst trying to cover its tracks.

"These pointless attempts to distract from the real issues are tantamount to committing commercial suicide in the international market.

“It’s also worth noting that these allegations are being made by a company found guilty just last week in the Netherlands of making misleading claims in its adverts.”

Greenpeace says the evidence against APP is available to view on its website.
