Stakeholders in the forestry industry are ready to implement the operational plan for Indonesia’s Forestry and Other Land Use (FOLU) NET SINK 2030 launched by the Minister of Environment and Forestry Siti Nurbaya on March 2022.
The operational plan is an effort to control climate change to achieve Indonesia’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), based on basic principles which mainly include sustainable forest management, environmental governance and carbon governance.
APP Sinar Mas affirmed its commitment to support the work targets of the 2030 FOLU NET SINK operational plan through reducing deforestation and forest degradation, regulating plantation forest development, sustainable forest management, social forestry, forest rehabilitation, peat restoration governance, peat water management improvements, repair and conservation of mangroves as well as conservation of biodiversity and its ecosystem.
“We have an obligation to support various efforts to achieve Indonesia’s FOLU NET SINK 2030 target,” APP Sinar Mas Chief Sustainability Officer, Elim Sritaba, said in Jakarta, 28 April 2022.
The FOLU NET SINK 2030 operational plan underlined that the implementation of the operational legal documents is carried out jointly based on collaboration by involving stakeholders, including the business world.
“APP Sinar Mas, as part of the Indonesian business world, continues to work with reference to Indonesia’s FOLU NET SINK 2030 operational plan so that we can play a real and sustainable role,” said Elim.
“We are also committed to implementing sustainable business practices so that the targets set by the Government of Indonesia can be achieved through joint and collaborative efforts,” added Elim.
