Apical met with ANJ on 20 May 2015 to discuss their development plans in West Papua.
Follow-up meeting was conducted with ANJ top management on 13 August 2015 for feedback on the HCS and HCV studies that have been carried out in the West Papua concessions.
In early October, ANJ made a presentation to the HCS Steering Group to be considered for a pilot HCS study in high forested landscapes. For this, ANJ has been requested to carry out a detailed FPIC process at their West Papua concessions.
In line with our sustainability commitments and our buyers’ interest, we have temporarily removed ANJ from our approved suppliers list while continue to monitor the development of this allegation.
