VicForests has abandoned its sham attempt to gain a green tick for their logging practices under the International Forest Stewarship Council (FSC) label. It had a snowball's hope in hell before but now the Federal Govt has decalred the Leadbeaters Possum critically endangered, it's more like a snowflakes hope in hell.
VicForests has said..."Following the listing of the Leadbeater’s Possum as critically endangered, (we) made the decision to delay undergoing an audit ... it would be premature to go ahead ... (need) more time to understand the important role VicForests ... play in ... recovery of the Possum ... remain committed to seeking FSC certification ..."
VicForests is a dead man walking. Time to stop plundering forests, the public's million$ and feeding the Andrews government with lies.
