This is the second time APP has received this recognition from EcoVadis. The rating is based on an extensive assessment of four key areas in APP’s operations in Indonesia and China – Environment, Labor Practice and Human Rights, Sustainable Procurement, and Fair Business Practices.
EcoVadis operates a collaborative assessment platform that derives results from a survey adapted to a company’s size and sector, supporting documentation and public and stakeholder information. EcoVadis holds assessments for around 40,000 suppliers in 150 sectors in 120 countries.
“This gold rating affirms our efforts to ensure sustainability in all areas of our operation and our continued progress on our sustainability journey,” says Elim Sritaba, director of sustainability and stakeholder engagement, Asia Pulp & Paper. “Continual improvement and consistency are essential as we try to achieve all our goals to become a fully sustainable company.”
