Asian paper giant agrees to stop cutting Indonesia’s natural rain forests

 

Asia Pulp & Paper, the third-largest pulp and paper company in the world,announced Tuesday that it is halting operations in Indonesia’s natural rain forests, a victory for advocates who have been negotiating with the company for the past year.

The Singapore-based company, which controls logging concessions spanning nearly 6.4 million acres in Indonesia, said it also has agreed to protect forested peatland, which stores massive amounts of carbon, and to work with indigenous communities to protect their native land.
