FGV to restore over 1,000ha of rainforest in West Kalimantan


PETALING JAYA: Palm oil company Felda Global Ventures Holding Berhad (FGV) has agreed to restore more than 1,000ha of peat forest in West Kalimantan after coming under pressure for its unsustainable deforestation.

Reports from environmental organisations Greenpeace and Chain Reaction Research had criticised FGV’s rapid deforestation, especially in high conservation value forest, that is said to be a violation of Indonesia’s no-peat development law.
