How Sinar Mas is pulping the planet | Greenpeace International.

From website:

“A new investigative report from Greenpeace, ‘How Sinar Mas is Pulping the Planet’, shows how major brands like Walmart, Auchan and Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) are fueling climate change and pushing Sumatran tigers and orang-utans towards the brink of extinction.”

Asia Pulp and Paper (or APP) is part of the Sinar Mas group.  The companies listed above are using or selling paper from APP.  Indonesia‘s rainforests are being destroyed along with their carbon rich peat fields.

“The Bukit Tigapuluh Forest Landscape is one of the last refuges for endangered Sumatran tigers and orang-utans.

Several leading companies have already responded to Greenpeace evidence of the Sinar Mas group’s illegal and destructive environmental practices in Indonesia and are cancelling their contracts with the Indonesian palm oil and paper giant. Greenpeace is calling on the rest to follow suit.”
