Newscorp: Cut Ties With Korindo!

Newscorp: Cut Ties With Korindo!

Investigations by Markets For Change and US group Mighty Earth found News Corp newspapers The Courier Mail and The Australian are being printed on Aspex paper. Aspex is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Korean-Indonesian palm oil conglomerate Korindo.

Korindo is a rogue company with a long history of rampant rainforest destruction, illegal practices and human rights violations.  The environmental destruction caused by Korindo vastly exceeds the environmental benefit of using the recycled newsprint from Aspex, especially as alternative supplies of recycled newsprint are available as substitutes.

Send a Letter to the Editor of The Australian and The Courier Mail asking them to cut ties with Korindo. Australian news companies should source responsible products from responsible companies.

  • Purchase newsprint only from responsible suppliers

Send a Letter to the Editor asking the publishers of The Australian and The Courier Mail to:

  • Purchase newsprint only from responsible suppliers
  • Take immediate action to remove from their supply chains the Aspex newsprint used regionally for Australian newspaper production by News Corp. 

Doing so will help protect the rainforest, endangered species, indigenous communities, and the climate, and could persuade Korindo to join others in the palm oil, timber, and pulp and paper industries in moving in a more environmentally and socially responsible manner.

It will also help their newspapers and subscribers feel confident that they are dispensing and consuming news without a connection to deforestation or endangerment of wild life and natural ecosystems.
