WWF's statement comes less than a week after similar demands from Greenpeace and the Rainforest Action Network (RAN), activist groups that helped lead the campaign to pressure APP to stop clearing native forests.
Greenpeace sent a letter to Sukanto Tanoto, the chairman of Royal Golden Eagle International, the conglomerate that owns APRIL, putting the company on notice that it would soon be targeted by campaigners if it doesn't clean up its operations. Meanwhile RAN, which has been running a campaign against APRIL since 2009, launched a new email protest via its web site.
