      15. Total area of natural forest designated for wood/wood fibre production (ha)?

      359,180 - This figure is the sum of five forest concessions, but the information is undated. The company refers to "timber concession and harvesting" so it is unclear if this includes both natural forest and timber plantations. Figures totalling 345,943 ha are referred to in the 2018 annual report, but it is again unclear if these refer to natural forest or plantation.

    • P
      0.5 / 1

      16. Total area of forest plantation (ha)?

      37,008 - The company reports this as the planted area in 2016 within its total licensed area of 310,713 ha for forest plantation (though note this total licensed area figure is undated and contradicts figures reported elsewhere on the website). It also stated in 2016 that the target for new planting in 2017 was 1,336 ha, so the total may now be higher. A more up-to-date figure could not be found. The company also reports 30,796 ha of trees planted under its 'Reforestation Division' in its 2018 annual report, but the scope of this figure is also unclear.

      The company states "Integrated landscape management is practised in forest plantation licences with 70 % of project areas conserved as stream buffer, HCV reserves, steep terrain, and green belts for fauna and biodiversity conservation" but this figure is undated, the actual hectarage cannot be accurately calculated due to conflicting and unclear figures, and this 70% refers to plantations and does not cover all the company's operations.

      21. Number of Forest Management Units (FMUs)?

      15 - There are five timber concessions and nine forest plantations reported, but these figures are all undated or more than five years old. It is also possible there is a 10th plantation belonging to the company - a Global Forest Watch dataset lists "LPF/0043 Sarawak Planted Forest - SFD" as belonging to "KTS/Samling/Ta Ann".

    • P
      0.5 / 1

      22. Maps of forest management units (FMUs)?

      The company provides static maps of timber concessions and plantations on its website. Concession boundaries for five natural forest concessions and 10 plantations are provided on WRI Global Forest Watch, but it is unclear if these represent all FMUs.

      Forest Management Plan summary was found for one FMU, KAPIT.

      24. Monitoring of forest management plan implementation available?

      [Externally verified] Points for external verification have been awarded on the basis of the company's PEFC-certification. As the International Standard's requirements do not fully meet the SPOTT indicator criteria limited, externally verified points have therefore been awarded for this indicator. Also, the summary of forest monitoring is available for Kapit.
