Menurut Greenpeace pada Maret 2012, pabrik kertas utama APP di Indonesia (Indah Kiat Perawang) mencampur kayu ramin ilegal secara teratur dengan spesies hutan hujan lainnya dalam pasokan kayu pulp nya. APP membantah tuduhan tersebut, menyatakan “APP berterima kasih kepada Greenpeace untuk membawa laporan ini untuk perhatian kita. Kami mengambil sangat serius bukti pelanggaran peraturan tentang perlindungan spesies pohon yang terancam punah…APP mempertahankan kebijakan toleransi nol ketat untuk kayu ilegal memasuki rantai pasokan dan memiliki sistem rantai balak yang komprehensif (CoC) untuk memastikan bahwa hanya kayu legal yang dapat memasuki pabrik pulp.” <ref>{{cite news|title=APP statement on Greenpeace Ramin report |url= http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO1203/S00024/app-statement-on-greenpeace-ramin-report.htm |newspaper=Scoop Independent News|date=1 March 2012}}</ref> Sejak Indonesia melarang penebangan dan perdagangan [[Ramin (pohon)|ramin]] pada 2001, lebih dari seperempat dari habitat ramin ini telah dibersihkan - banyak dari daerah ini saat ini memasok APP. Peta pemerintah menunjukkan bahwa 800.000 ha (28%) dari hutan rawa gambut Sumatra dibersihkan antara tahun 2003 dan 2009. Pada tahun 2003, 80% dari hutan rawa gambut Sumatra, habitat ramin kunci, juga diidentifikasi sebagai habitat penting untuk kelangsungan hidup [[Harimau sumatera]].<ref name="GPMarch2012"/>

Pada 2004, Zhejiang Hotels Association mengumumkan bahwa mereka tidak akan lagi membeli produk APP karena perusahaan melakukan kegiatan pembalakan liar di provinsi Yunnan, menyebabkan APP mengancam untuk menuntut kepada perusahaan. <ref>{{cite news|title=Paper Maker Backs Off from Lawsuit |url= http://www.china.org.cn/english/2005/Feb/121196.htm |newspaper= China Through a Lens |date=25 February 2005}}</ref> Gugatan itu kemudian dibatalkan karena dari kampanye publisitas besar dari [[Greenpeace China]].<ref>{{cite news|title= Victory for public environmental action as APP withdraws lawsuit |url= http://www.greenpeace.org/eastasia/press/releases/forests/2005/victory-for-public-environment/|work= Greenpeace East Asia |date=22 February 2005}}</ref>
 
<!--In 2005, APP was also found to be conducting illegal logging in [[Yunnan Province]] in China,<ref>{{cite web|author=english@peopledaily.com.cn |url=http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/200503/31/eng20050331_178828.html |title=People's Daily Online – Forestry authorities charges Singaporean paper giant with illegal logging |work=People's Daily |date=31 March 2005 |accessdate=7 June 2012}}</ref> while a subsidiary of the firm called "Green Rich" was caught illegally logging in [[Cambodia]].
 
According to Asia Times Online, APP’s business model is a tactically aggressive one: it turns huge profiles by quickly stripping forests bare, exploiting age-old forests and indigenous peoples, and leaving town before the environmental consequences are felt.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Southeast_Asia/GA06Ae01.html |title=Asia Times Online :: Southeast Asia news and business from Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam |publisher=Atimes.com |accessdate=7 June 2012}}</ref>
 
An investigation published in March 2008 by an environmental coalition called Eyes on the Forest<ref>{{cite web|url=http://eyesontheforest.or.id/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=174&Itemid=6&lang=english |title=New APP Logging Road Threatens One of World’s Biggest Carbon-Storing Forests, Tigers; Eyes on the Forest, March 2008 |publisher=Eyesontheforest.or.id |date=22 May 2012 |accessdate=7 June 2012}}</ref> showed evidence of a new road built by APP, heading through the Kampar peninsula, one of the world's largest contiguous tropical [[peat swamp forest]]s, with more carbon per hectare than any other ecosystem on Earth. The investigation found tracks on the new road of the [[critically endangered]] [[Sumatran Tiger]], whose wild population has been reduced to less than 500 individuals. APP claimed that it was building this state-of-the-art, paved highway for the benefit of the local communities, though satellite imagery shows that the road does not go anywhere near the two settlements.
The authors of the report stated:<blockquote>We strongly urge APP to join the ranks of responsible businesses and conduct its operations within the law.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/03/080325203442.htm |title=Logging Road Threatens Rare Peat Dome, Tigers |publisher=Sciencedaily.com |date=25 March 2008 |accessdate=7 June 2012}}</ref></blockquote>
 
In January 2008, the office retailer [[Staples (company)|Staples]] ended their 11-year relationship with APP, which had formerly supplied between 5 and 9% of the paper sold at the chain "due to their clear lack of progress in improving their environmental performance."<ref>Bloomberg.com Staples Ends Contracts With Asia Pulp on Environment. 7 February 2008.

In 2010, Patrick Moore, a former Greenpeace activist, describes APP as not responsible for deforestation but that it is caused mostly by locals “illegally encroaching on forests in search of better livelihoods. By employing Indonesian people, APP is reducing deforestation, as more employment means less poverty, which means less pressure to move into the forest.” <ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.theguardian.com/environment/georgemonbiot/2010/dec/02/sumatra-rainforest-destruction-patrick-moore |title=Why is a former Greenpeace activist siding with Indonesia’s logging industry? |publisher=The Guardian |date=02 December 2010 |accessdate=18 December 2013}}</ref>
 
In 2011, when asked if he believes APP is sincere in reforming its logging practices, Dorjee Sun, CEO of Carbon Conservation, stated that. “Change in large organizations always takes time, so our goal by 2020 is to build sustainability practices, targets and a roadmap with accountable milestones which will result in true sustainability throughout the entire corporation.” <ref>{{cite web|url= http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2011/04/06/what-green-thinkers-think-about-green/ |title= What green thinkers think about green |publisher=CNN Money |date=06 April 2011 |accessdate=18 December 2013}}</ref>
