No matter how digital we become, we will inevitably need paper. But what’s being done to make sure that forests are protected?
This season on Tomorrow’s World Today, field reporter Tamara Krinsky visits Asia Pulp & Paper in Indonesia to learn about their sustainable development roadmap that will expand paper supply in the future. APP works with 284 local villages to protect and rehabilitate natural forests. Viewers will also learn about Black Liquor, a byproduct of making pulp, and how it is being fed back into the pulp-making process to create energy for the boilers.
“Even as advancing technology changes the way we live, paper continues to be a vital part of our everyday, from hygiene and healthcare to creativity and commerce,” said Goh Lin Piao, Managing Director of Asia Pulp & Paper. “At Asia Pulp & Paper, we have adopted leading-edge technologies in every part of our business, such as smart management of plantations and efficient mills that capture byproducts for reuse and energy sources. This allows us to produce versatile paper products in increasingly safe, responsible and sustainable ways.”
