Indonesia: Greenpeace reverses decision not to work with Asia Pulp and Paper

Date: 28 May 2015

Greenpeace has said that it will once again work with Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) after it suspended dealings with the company following the death of an Indonesian farmer.

The farmer, Indra Pelani, was killed three months ago in an incident with security guards at one of the company's suppliers. Greenpeace, which had been working with the company on conservation, pulled co-operation in protest.

Support has been resumed because, according to the campaign group, APP has responded quickly and decisively to the death. It suspended operations surrounding the deceased's village and cut ties with the security firm in question. The group did warn, however, that it felt that APP had to do more to avoid the possibility of such events recurring.
