We believe world’s natural resources must be renewable. To minimize damage to the environment due to logging activities, PT Narkata Rimba collaborates with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) from the US. This institution serves as a partner for PT Narkata Rimba in implementing activities for responsible forestry utilization. The development system is called Reduced Impact Logging (RIL) systems. In addition, TNC also provides guidance to meet FSC® certification standards.
At its early operation, PT Narkata Rimba was logging with Indonesian Selective Cutting (TPI – Tebang Pilih Indonesia) systems. The company later refined the system into Indonesian Selective Cutting and Planting (TPTI – Tebang Pilih Tanam Indonesia) to improve the environmental sustainability
Forest products utilization activities done by PT Narkata Rimba are always carefully planned and supported by certified human resources and modern machinery, such as Theodolite, GPS and computerized system for data processing.

The site of PT Narkata Rimba from provincial cities can be reached through landline or waterways. The landline access requires travel time for approximately 10 hours, while for the waterways by boat down the Mahakam River – Wahau River requires 2 days of travel. Since the opening of the road from Samarinda to Berau, people generally prefer landline because of its shorter travel time.
