War of words between Greenpeace, Asia Pulp & Paper over deforestation allegations
I'd like clarification on APP on its assertion that "IPS specifically clarified that they did not conduct any tests to determine whether the packaging fibre was recycled or otherwise." Can APP quote the exact language to that effect in the IPS letter? This is relevant because APP's own product specs for packaging boards used for toys (attached) show that the top sheet is virgin fiber content. According to Greenpeace's website, IPS tested "the virgin fibre content of the glossy top layer of packaging board". The product specs [editor: product specifications for a Sinar Mas product were attached] appear to contradict APP's claim that recycled and virgin fiber is mixed together.
