Asia Pulp & Paper (APP)

Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) is one of the world’s largest fully integrated pulp & paper companies, and accounts for more than half of Indonesia’s total pulp capacity. APP’s pulp and paper mills have fuelled massive deforestation, peatland drainage and social conflicts across its 38 supplier concessions covering 2.6 million hectares. APP’s OKI Pulp & Paper Mill, just now coming on-line in South Sumatra, is fanning fresh social and environmental land conflict risks as APP moves to secure increased plantation wood-supply to feed the new mega-mill.
