Zero Burning

We have been monitoring deforestation (including in High Conservation Value/HCV and plasma areas) using Global Land Analysis and Discovery (GLAD) deforestation alert and fire using Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) fire alert in the palm oil and plasma areas of ┬▒ 98,000 ha.

In the process of developing palm oil plantation, Tunas Sawa Erma Group has been actively following the provisions of the Indonesian Government such as the Zero Burning policy and the moratorium on peat land to create a healthy and balanced ecosystem.

Some of the concrete steps that have been made include: carry on mechanical land clearance and without burning, have reliable Firefighters to monitor and prevent forest fires so it will bring a sense of security and comfort in the surrounding area of the palm oil plantations.

Besides, Tunas Sawa Erma also cooperates with the local relevant technical agencies to carry on joint monitoring and evaluation to ensure there is no land burning. Please see the fire fighting simulation video that we conduct every year.
