Here at the Fortune Magazine Brainstorm Green 2011 conference, Carbon Conservation CEO Dorjee Sun announces highlights the sustainable forest management projects currently underway by APP.
APP selected Carbon Conservation as its Vision 2020 partner based on its experience with the company developing the Kampar Carbon Reserve. Located on 15,000 hectares in Riau Province in Sumatra, the Kampar Carbon Reserve is being developed as the world's first privately funded project turning pulpwood plantation concessions into a carbon reserve.
In addition to assessing APP's operations, the group will look at relevant best-in-class case studies from companies across the globe to help model and benchmark APP's programs. Carbon Conservation will also engage a range of third-party experts to participate in the process, initially validating elements of the roadmap and later advising and potentially partnering with APP on execution in order for APP to become one of the most sustainable paper companies in the world.
