South Pacific Viscose
In Harmony with Nature
SPV is fully committed to the protection and enhancement of the environment around its production facilities. Since its inception, the company has adopted the best practices to set up a pole position in meeting the environmental norms in Indonesia; applying the standards it upholds in Europe.
We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and welcome both feedback on our performance to date and suggestions on how we can improve in the future. It is not enough to maintain the status quo; we strive for improvement in meeting the environmental targets.
We rank among the world's top cellulose fiber producers and surpass most of our competitors in terms of environmental protection; a fact that has been acknowledged by the International Finance Corporation.
Considerable investment has been made in comprehensive waste and pollution control systems. Readers are invited to click through to detailed information on each of these systems indicated below. Our environmental control procedures are fully integrated into our production processes. Continual improvement of efficiency in our operating systems leads to lower generation of wastes.
SPV also places the highest priority on the occupational health and safety of its staff. Readers may view our policies and initiatives in that section.
Occupational Health and Safety
SPV applies the same occupational health and safety standards as those practiced by its parent company in Europe. We take full responsibility for the operating environment of our staff and endeavour to make this among the most sought after in Indonesia.
For us, avoidance and prevention of health and safety problems is always prioritised over curing problems after they have occurred.
SPV will increase its fiber production capacity by 80,000 tons per year with the construction of line 5, which will operate by end of 2012. This addition capacity will increase SPV’s total production to 325,000 tons per year.

South Pacific Viscose (SPV), the company's main Asian production facility, located at Purwakarta, West Java.
