Pray tell what ‘FSC compliant’ means???
Not very much at all it appears:
FSC’s record of performance in Australia
Labels and brand names don’t tell us anything.
FSC is as good as the stakeholder allow it to be.
Brenda, I trust you not just comment here on this blog, but that you get involved in stating your points to the forum when it matters.
I know that the customers of GUNNS (and FT’s)in Japan are very aware about the difference between the spin treatments, the gloss and propaganda they have received for years do not stack up to the reality.
Without the international demand for FSC products, the 5 big customers would never seen the need to come to Tassie to hear and see for themselves.
You should / could get actively involved in the FSC process, it would show that you can in fact do much more than simply cut and paste the sad shortcommings of the past in other places.
I am supporting anyone who is prepared to expose the good, the bad and the ugly, and I can assure that I made my position very clear to others in the Victorian cases.
Let me / us know, if/when you have you can offer better alternatives to the FSC process and better than an open triple bottom line approach?
Happy to exchange with anyone to expose the realities. In the case of Tasmania, we can only gain - not loose.
I wish, you could become a bid more positive and this can lead to some positive energy.
Cheer up for change
Frank S: “FSC is as good as the stakeholder allow it to be.”
I’m a stakeholder in Tasmania, not in FSC, Frank.
FSC’s stated bottom line is corporate economic viability. Mine (in this case) is the ability to survive and thrive in my physical environment. Both are threated by FSC acceptance of monocultures and its failure to ensure genuinely sustainable practices in business.
Cheer up, Frank! There are lots of options. You too can choose to install a bidet to replace your toilet-paper-dependent loo.
Fair go - Frank - c’mon..
Whare are any enforceable standards for FSC ?
An immediate alternative to FSC would be ‘FSC with enforceable national standards’ and that’s just the first cab off the rank..what about ‘planting native mixed species with no pesticides and no clear felling or burning of the residue- with enforeable national standards’ number 2 off the rank..I could go on….
