"The independent verification of our report is a very important step forward. It demonstrates to the public - without question - APP's absolute commitment to transparency and sustainability," commented Aida Greenbury, Managing Director, Sustainability & Stakeholder Engagement, APP. She added: "‘Getting the Facts Down on Paper' refutes and rejects the fictitious and misleading accusations made by certain NGOs. The verification report by Mazars provides us and the public with hard evidence that APP is following a rigorously planned and implemented sustainability path."
Indonesian land-use laws for conservation, production forest, agriculture and other uses, explicitly state that regulations must balance economic growth, development, environmental use and social welfare. This is the sustainable balance determined by the Indonesian Government, which attempts to integrate economic, social, and environmental functions. ‘Getting the Facts Down on Paper,' and Mazars' verification report show that the support APP Indonesia provides in the areas of social and economic development and the environmental protection of various communities in Indonesia is very important to maintain this fragile balance.
