Foreword from Aida Greenbury,
Foreword from Aida Greenbury, Managing Director of Sustainability and Stakeholder Engagement, APP
This is the fourth report on our progress in implementing APP’s wide ranging Sustainability Roadmap Vision 2020, announced in June 2012. It comes nine months after the introduction of the Forest Conservation Policy (FCP), which brought forward the moratorium on all natural forest clearance by two years. Since the policy was launched in February 2013 we have made considerable progress in carrying out the promised High Conservation Value (HCV) and High Carbon Stock (HCS) assessments across all 38 of our suppliers’ concessions. As part of the HCV assessment process, we have begun the complex task of assessing peatland in our suppliers’
concessions. We have also initiated a policy of global responsible bre
sourcing, and begun implementing an increasingly effective social,
community and conict resolution programme.
This report comes on the heels of a Greenpeace report assessing our progress in implementing the FCP. The report highlights achievements we have made, acknowledges the continuing commitment of our senior management to the policy, our transparency in reporting developments, and challenges we must address. We welcome this report and look forward to continued engagement with Greenpeace and other stakeholders in the future. More details can be found later in this document. Our partner, TFT, continues to publish regular FCP Progress Updates available through the TFT website and via our online monitoring dashboard. A pilot version of the dashboard went live in June 2013 and we have been consulting stakeholders on its content since then. We encourage you to access both the monitoring dashboard and the TFT reports as a means of tracking our progress. As ever, your comments are welcome, and you can send these to us at sustainability@app.co.id

APP is in complete agreement with the criteria Greenpeace have set out in order to judge the short and long term success of its FCP. This includes the continued delivery of the forest and undeveloped peatland development moratoriums, the quality of the High Conservation Value (HCV), High Carbon Stock (HCS), peatland and social assessments, as well as the recommendations and enhanced management plans that will arise from these assessments. For more details on how APP is proposing to address the challenges raised in the Greenpeace report, please access our full response on our website. We welcome the clarity of advice that Greenpeace is giving customers wishing to engage with APP, stating that ongoing implementation of the FCP should be one of the conditions of doing business with the company. APP believes that additional scrutiny provided by buyers can only help APP in the continued implementation of the FCP. This level of engagement with customers will send a clear signal to the market that the actions being taken by APP are genuine and should be commended.The scrutiny of Greenpeace, and many other stakeholders, has been an important driver of our progress towards ‘No Deforestation’ and greater transparency. We remain more committed than ever to the ambitious task we have set ourselves and look forward to continued engagement with Greenpeace and a range of other stakeholders in the months and years ahead. On October 28
, Greenpeace published a progress review of our Forest Conservation Policy (FCP). The report assessed APP’s progress in implementing the FCP policy commitments, highlighting areas of positive progress and ongoing challenges, as well as setting out criteria against which to judge the short and long-term success of our FCP. APP has welcomed the publication of the Greenpeace Progress Review. Full details of our response to that report, including the challenges raised, can be found on our website. APP is pleased that the Greenpeace report has recognised our efforts in moving ahead on key areas of the FCP implementation. That includes our overall implementation of the natural forest and undeveloped peatland moratoriums. The report also highlighted APP’s self-disclosure of two FCP moratorium breaches and the corrective actions it has taken to improve the management and implementation of the FCP. Greenpeace also welcomes our decision to introduce independent third-party auditing of FCP implementation.
