FSC launches in Australia

The Forest Stewarship Council (FSC) officially launched in Australia in March 2007.

For those who aren't aware, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international network that promotes responsible management of the world’s forests.

According to their website : "Responsible Forest Management Australia Limited (RFMA) trades as FSC Australia and its mission is to promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of forests in Australia and countries supplying the Australian forest products market"

This is great news, the forests of Australia have needed an international defender for some time and with the weight of the FSC finally arriving, we have a group that will keep both the Government and Forestry Industry honest. As their logos says "because forests matter".
