Indonesian enforcement questioned as fires flare up on the same concessions

by | Oct 4, 2019 | Uncategorized

#Indonesia says it plans to impose stricter punishment for plantation companies with recurring instances of fire on their concessions, including permanently revoking their permits.⠀ ⠀

Several of the companies whose concessions have been burning this year were also at the heart of the 2015 fires.⠀ ⠀

Activists say the fact that the problem is recurring on the same concessions highlights the government’s failure to adequately punish the companies.⠀ ⠀

A Greenpeace report has found no meaningful action taken against palm oil companies guilty of burning since 2015, and inconsistent enforcement against pulpwood companies during that same period.⠀ ⠀
