pdf Australia and New Zealand joint submission to the draft FSC pesticides policy - September 2005

In 2004/5 The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) embarked on a process of reviewing their Pesticides policy. This process included a review by the Pesticides Action Network UK. The apparent direction of the existing policy led certified companies in Australia and New Zealand to make submissions to the process motivated by the fact that the proposed changes would make FSC certification untenable.
