Our last purchase date was in August 2018.
We have 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 nor operations. They have a ‘Stop Work order’ in place since 31 August 2018 with regards to PT Agrindo Green Lestari (PT AGL) and PT Citra Agro Abadi, 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, i.e. in Barito Timur and Pulau Bentan.
