FAP Agri – Ketapang Hijau Lestari (KHL) – popup
|October 2018||30 October 2018:
Mighty Earth RRR9 alleged deforestation by Ketapang Hijau Lestari (KHL), where a total of 250 hectares of forest were cleared in East Kalimantan province between 25 July and 22 September 2018.
We have engaged FAP Agri and sought clarification on their relationship with First Resources and also, on their sustainability initiatives.
|FAP Agri confirmed there is no relation between First Resources and FAP Agri in terms of ownership nor management. FAP Agri has one location in Sumatra and 10 locations in Kalimantan.
There is on-going land development work.
A HCS study (using Toolkit 1) was done in 2017 by Sonokling and a ‘stop work order’ was in place for 6 months during that period. Based on the study, certain areas have been set aside as conservation areas. No clearance or development is allowed on those areas.
FAP Agri has its own SOP on sustainability, which can be found here.
FAP Agri is transparent and willing to share documents such as its HCS study, legal permits and location maps on request, subject to certain conditions.
They have ISPO certification for two concessions. The management is very concerned about sustainability, and is considering applying for the RSPO certification.
|December 2020||We noticed that Ketapang Hijau Lestari have completed the HCSA peer review. Result of the review can be found on HCSA website.
Based on the above progress, we consider the Mighty Earth Report 9 case is resolved
