Greenpeace published a report, “A Deadly Trade-off” on 27 September 2016 accusing one of our suppliers, Eagle High/ Rajawali in violation of sustainability commitments on claims of deforestation, development on peat, utilization of fire for plantation development, and exploitation of human rights.
Apical did not source anything from the companies mentioned in the report (PT Arrtu Energie Resources, PT Varia Mitra Andalan, and PT Tandan Sawita Papua).
In October 2016, Apical met up with Eagle High in Jakarta to discuss policy compliance at group level. Eagle High has made formal clarifications on the allegations.
8 August 2017: Meeting with Eagle High, they clarified that all issues have been addressed.
Apical will continue to engage with supplier and monitor further development of the case.
