The report further alleged that another CAA subsidiary, Citra Agro Abadi (CAA) cleared 650 hectares of forest, which included orangutan habitat and potential peat forest during the same time period.
The Ciliandry Anky Abadi Group (CAA) was also allegedly linked to First Resources Group.
||We engaged CAA and sought clarification on their relationship with First Resources and also, on their sustainability initiatives.|
|CAA confirmed that they operate six concessions and two mills.
They also confirmed that they are a separate entity and do not have connections with First Resources in equity or operations. They have a ‘stop-work order’ in place since 31 August 2018 with regards to Agrindo Green Lestari (AGL) and Citra Agro Abadi (CAA) in Central Kalimantan, Pulang Pisau district.
CAA will be undertaking a HCS/HCV study and an action plan will be formulated from the outcome of the study. Currently, they are awaiting the “go-ahead” from the government before they proceed.
CAA has an SOP for sustainability, but it is not a strict NDPE policy – they are looking at publishing a NDPE Policy in 2019.
Two concessions have obtained ISPO certification, ie. in Barito Timur and Pulau Bentan.
CAA’s relationship with First Resources has been clarified by First Resources via a statement here.
