JAKARTA, Nov. 6, 2017 (Local News) -Riau Andalan Pulp and Paper, or RAPP, the operation unit of global pulp and paper industry leader Asia Pacific Resources International, has submitted a revision of its long-term business plan to comply with government regulations on peatland protection, a minister said on Friday (03/11).
"I have seen key points in their revised work plans. They have complied with the government regulations on peat protection," Environment and Forestry Minister Siti Nurbaya told reporters in Jakarta.
RAPP previously had a spat with the ministry after it rejected the company's 10-year business plan for a failure to comply with the government's new peatland protection framework, as detailed in Ministerial Decree No. 17 of 2017. That decree provides technical detail related to the implementation of Government Regulation No. 57 of 2016.
