A report by Greenpeace published on 27th September 2016 accusing TH Plantations and Austindo Nusantara Jaya (ANJ) in violation to the sustainability commitment as one of our palm oil suppliers.
TH Plantation was accused of clearing peat area on one of their concessions in PT Persada Kencana Prima. Based on our verification, Apical had not entered into trade relations with PT. Persada Kencana Prima or any mills of TH Plantation since December 2013. Similarly, Apical has not sourced from ANJ since May 2015 after reported allegation by Greenomics on their development in West Papua.
In line with our sustainability commitments and our buyers’ interest, we have temporarily remove TH Plantations and ANJ from our approved suppliers list while continue to monitor the development of these allegations.
