KLK discloses maps and coordinates of 23 out of its 25 mills. Concession boundaries have been made available to the RSPO and the company declares these represent 100% of their concession sites, but not all may not be publicly available due to ongoing legal issues. Maps will become available on GeoRSPO. Some of the concessions are available on the SPOTT map.
