Jan. 4, 2017 - Pindo Deli Pulp and Paper Mills, a business unit of Asia Pulp and Paper Group (APP), says it is introducing a “further innovation” to save energy and natural resources in its production process. In collaboration with the IDH Sustainable Trade Initiative, Pindo Deli is incorporating the new Clean Manufacturing Program (CMP) into the production process for its paper, tissue and packaging products.

The program emphasizes the need for greater energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reductions, as part of APP’s commitment to the Roadmap Vision 2020. The program also supports the Indonesian Government’s Nationally Determined Contribution, which includes an unconditional greenhouse gas emissions reduction target of 29 per cent by 2030.

APP began to implement CMP in Q4 2016 and the process will continue for the next 12 months, it said, adding that the main objective is to identify opportunities to improve energy efficiency and to implement measures to achieve optimal savings in energy use and carbon emissions over the short and long term.

The CMP is expected to reduce Pindo Deli’s energy requirement by at least 5 per cent in the first year and incrementally more in the coming years.

“At APP, we are not only making efforts to reduce GHG emission through the implementation of our Forest Conservation Policy which aims to protect the natural forests and peatland in our supply chain, but we are also working hard to achieve our target through Clean Manufacturing Programs in our mills. We are proud to collaborate with IDH Sustainability Trade Initiative for Pulp & Paper on this journey and we will ensure the smooth knowledge transfer to the rest of our operations,” said Aida Greenbury, APP managing director for sustainability.
