It’s a grim day for the world’s forests.
On Monday 26th March Greenpeace International announced it was leaving the FSC.
Greenpeace said that the FSC has become a “tool for forestry and timber extraction” and it wouldn’t renew its membership.

The FSC’s response to the Greenpeace announcement clearly shows no interest in rebuilding the relationship. Is this an indication that vested interests have indeed successfully taken control of the FSC?
Is this the end of third party forest certification?
