Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) Sinar Mas notes the progress being made towards formalizing the revised process for re-association (and the related FSC Remediation Framework) with the Forest Stewardship Council.
APP Sinar Mas continues to trust the role of certification in advancing sustainability outcomes and remains deeply committed to advancing the process ending disassociation.
Formal dialogues will only begin when the various FSC policies and procedures related to the FSC Policy for Association and the FSC Remediation Framework are refined and finalized. In the meantime, APP Sinar Mas is actively involved in the consultation process and is maintaining an open informal dialogue with FSC.
We look forward to reviewing the final policy requirements when they are publicly available before determining the best way forward in sustainable forest certifications.
