Mighty Earth RRR19 alleged that Bonti Permai Jayaraya (BPJ) conducted deforestation covering an area of 10 hectares between 17 January – 04 August 2019.

October 2019 We reached out to BPJ after the allegations in Mighty Earth RRR19 were raised.
January 2020
In January 2020, BPJ gave us clarifications regarding the report.

BPJ informed us that since 1999 until 2020, it has not conducted any new land clearing or new planting.

The map on the report is the area of BPJ’s location permit (Izin Lokasi), which was given to the company in 1996 and it expired in 1999.

As the company did not manage the entire area within the Izin Lokasi, the uncontrolled area was automatically returned to the state after the location permit expired in 1999.

The land clearing mentioned in ME RRR19 took place in the area returned to the state and is no longer been managed by BPJ since 1999. Therefore, the alleged area flagged out by Mighty Earth as part of PT BPJ is incorrect.

Based on above statement, we consider the Mighty Earth RRR 19 case as resolved
