PT. RAPP intends to adjust the Company's Business Work Plan (RKU) as directed by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK).

Since 2013, PT RAPP has run the Riau Ecosystem restoration program that currently covers 150,000 hectares of peat forest with an investment of 100 million US dollars over the next 10 years, as part of a restoration and conservation program in Indonesia.

"We will continue to work to meet the company's commitment to conserve 1 hectare for every hectare of plantation forest; currently has reached 83% or 419,000 hectares of currently conserved forest and restoration, "said Agung Laksamana further.

Further said by Agung, in running the business, the companies always comply with prevailing laws and regulations. "We believe that a balanced approach between environmental protection and production activities provides tangible results, both for economic and social growth at the provincial and rural levels."
