Wood and Fibre Sourcing Policy

Wood and Fibre Sourcing Policy

February 2023

APRIL Group is committed to sustainable development and upholds our business philosophy that doing what is "Good for the Country, Good for the Community, Good for the Climate, Good for the Customer, and Good for the Company".

Acknowledging the critical importance of forests and natural ecosystems in combating climate change, protecting and enriching biodiversity and natural resources, and sustaining community livelihoods, APRIL is firmly committed to eliminate deforestation1 and conversion2 in our operations and supply chain.

Building on our Sustainable Forest Management Policy 2.0 (2015), we reiterate our commitment to producing and sourcing all wood, virgin fibre, pulp, biomass (together "fibre") only from responsibly managed forests. We will follow all applicable national laws to only source legal fibre from supply chains with known origin and continue to commit to no illegal logging.

This policy aligns with the principles and guidelines laid out in the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, the International Bill on Human Rights, and the International Labour Organization (ILO) fundamental conventions.

This policy applies to APRIL's own operations, including those of our subsidiaries, mills, and plantation forests we own and/or manage, and all third-party fibre suppliers. It is implemented through a fibre sourcing due diligence system, including risk assessments, to evaluate and mitigate risks, and avoid material from unacceptable sources.
