Mattel also announced last month that it will stop buying from APP and introduced new policies to remove deforestation from its supply chain.

Greenpeace has today called on the Indonesian paper company itself to commit to ending its destruction of the country’s rainforests, in response to the news that more companies around the world are cutting ties with the paper giant.

Greenpeace also warned that APP’s continued forest destruction threatened the Indonesian President’s own commitment to dedicate his remaining time in office to saving Indonesia’s forest.

“Asia Pulp and Paper is bad for Indonesia’s forests and bad for Indonesia’s reputation, and is even threatening the Indonesian President’s own commitment to save the forests”, said Bustar Maitar, Forests campaigner Greenpeace South East Asia.

“APP must immediately commit to stop destroying rainforests”.

Earlier this year, APP’s sister company, Golden Agri Resources, introduced new policies to tackle deforestation. It has since started to win back the customers it had lost in the international market place, including Nestle.

“APP must follow GAR’s lead and immediately commit to an end to deforestation”, concluded Maitar.
