APRIL Group is understood to have received PEFC Sustainable Forest Management certification according to PEFC’s website, to go along with its manufacturing operations which already hold the PEFC Chain-of-Custody certificate. 

The certificate http://pefc.org/company-detail?id=546003 does not state the area but it is understood to include nearly half of the company’s plantation area so far with the remainder to follow. 
 
The PEFC certification system accounts for around two thirds of the forests worldwide that are certified under global forest certification schemes. 




The news comes hot on the heels of APRIL’s announcement that it will stop natural forest clearance in Indonesia.
