The markets will

The markets will certainly react negatively. APRIL’s commitments, which have been widely disseminated in the media, will most assuredly come under the spotlight. What does APRIL wish to achieve by clearing legally-established HCVF areas?

Background Regardless that APRIL has announced a new sustainability policy to “clean up deforestation” from its entire supply chain, the company has demonstrated its inability to ensure legal compliance as it has been proven to still be clearing legallyestablished HCVF (High Conservation Value Forest) areas. The relevant evidence cannot be disproved through third-party verification, even if conducted independently, as the illegal clearance of legally-established HCVF areas constitutes a serious violation of forestry law. Greenomics issued a strong reminder to APRIL on this when the company announced its new sustainability policy on 3 June 2015, when it became apparent that the new policy continued to provide opportunities for APRIL to clear legally-established HCVF areas. Now, what Greenomics averted to has become reality. APRIL ended up clearing some of the legallyestablished HCVF areas on its concession. What does it mean for APRIL, which committed itself to cleaning up its supply chain from deforestation, if the legally-established HCVF areas that are found on its own concessions are incapable of being protected and maintained, and even end up being cleared by APRIL itself? It is not difficult to see how the credibility of APRIL's new sustainability policy will be undermined if the company is involved in the illegal logging of legally-established HCVF areas.
