|Environmental :: Deforestation||Greenpeace||Sinar Mas Group is Indonesia’s largest palm oil company and boasts of ‘aggressive plantation expansion’. It has grown its palm oil plantation area by over a third in the last 2 years and has further expansion plans in Kalimantan and the largely untouched provinces of Papua, where it plans to develop a rainforest area of up to 2.8 million hectares. Judging by past operations and known concessions that Sinar Mas holds, the vast majority of future expansion is likely to involve deforestation, some on peatlands and in the habitats of the critically endangered orangutan. Sinar Mas is also heavily involved in the pulp and paper industry through its subsidiary, Asia Pulp & Paper (APP). APP has extensive plantation areas on peatlands and in 2007 was found to be buying illegal timber originating from a peatland area in Riau Province, Sumatra. The peat in this area was more than 4 metres deep, which is illegal to develop, clear or drain under Indonesian law. It is also illegal to buy timber from such areas.||Dec. 19, 2008||Sinar Mas|
