Fire Free Alliance (FFA) is a voluntary multi-stakeholder group made up primarily of forestry and agriculture companies, and with Civil Society Organisations, and other concerned partners keen to resolve the issue of persistent fires and haze arising from land burning.

The FFA was formally launched in March 2016, and other founding members of the FFA include APRIL Group, Asian Agri, IDH, PM.Haze, Rumah Pohon and Wilmar.

Members have jointly committed to collaborate and share knowledge, information and potentially, resources to roll out fire prevention initiatives based on APRIL Group’s Fire Free Village Programme (FFVP), and also to enhance fire monitoring, detection and suppression. 

The ultimate goal of the FFA is to achieve lasting solutions that would lead to fire and haze-free outcomes, particularly in and near locations we operate in.

FFA members will adopt and implement the FFVP, sharing lessons and best practices on how partnerships and engagement with the communities can protect forests from the high risk of fires. NGOs and other partners will contribute towards facilitation to a wider group of companies, research capability and where the expertise is available, review fire management strategies and practices of FFA members. The FFA’s commitment supports the Indonesian Government’s commitment to a Haze Free ASEAN by 2020.
