Business model based on generating GHG emissions from continuing peat drainage.
APRIL: APRIL is in the process of determining its carbon footprint and has collaborated with a number of expert scientific third parties to build the science on carbon and peatlands. Some of the studies conducted have indicated that carbon emissions in our concession areas are less than or certainly not more than the point at which we have been awarded our licenses.
Destruction of high conservation value forests.
APRIL: Indonesia has approximately 131 million hectares of forest estate. The Indonesian Government has zoned 53 million hectares as conservation and protected forests and about 78 million hectares for production forest development. All of APRIL’s wood supply comes from these development zones, on land that the Indonesian Government has licensed specifically for industrial plantation development (HTI).
