January 2017
We engaged with TBL regarding the allegations mentioned in the Chain Reaction Research Report. We applied ‘controlled purchase’ on TBL’s mills in South Sumatera.
TBL clarified to Musim Mas that they have a sustainability policy in place since Jan 2015 and have not used burning to clear the said land.

TBL further confirmed that all necessary legal permits and licenses were obtained in accordance with the Plantation laws, leading to the renewal of the concession permit.

July 2018 Our last purchase was in July 2018.
