WILDERNESS SOCIETY. Södra set pulp mill conditions

More than 4,000 signatures and less than two days after our original online action to Swedish pulp company Södra, it released a statement confirming any involvement it has with Gunns Ltd’s pulp mill would only occur if 100% Forest Stewardship Council certified, plantation timber is used and if the pulp mill uses totally chlorine-free technology.

This breakthrough came about because people like you took action – thank you! But many issues remain unresolved. And more action is required.

Right now Gunns is logging native forests across Tasmania. For anyone to have confidence that any project in Tasmania will be plantation-based, our precious native forests need to be protected.

Please send an urgent message to Södra’s CEO, Mr Leif Brodén, now.

2937 people have signed so far!

Södra now needs to support the protection of Tasmania’s irreplaceable native forests if it is to become involved in a pulp mill project with Gunns.

It must also make it clear it won’t build a pulp mill in Tasmania’s Tamar Valley which will threaten the local environment and community.

Take urgent action by signing this updated petition today.

And please pass this on to your friends and family too. We urgently need to get as many messages to Mr Brodén as possible to ensure he understands Australians want to ensure our forests and future are protected.

Your involvement so far has made a huge difference. Keep up the great work!
