Kuala Lumpur Kepong (KLK) Berhad
(1) The report alleged that KLK Berhad’s subsidiary, PT Menteng Jaya Sawit Perdana (PT MJSP), developed a total of 12 hectares of peat from 27 March – 28 July 2019.
We clarified the allegations made in Mighty Earth Report 18 with the management of KLK.
KLK Berhad responded and referred us to G06 on their grievance list in KLK’s website.
The case states that although the alleged area is located within PT MJSP’s izin lokasi (location permit). It is no longer under the management control of PT MJSP since 2016, as the Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup & Kehutanan (KLHK) declared this area as a Community Forest Plantation (Hutan Tanaman Rakyat) area.
