A big thank you to everyone that signed this cyberaction in protection of Tasmania's precious native forests.
6163 people called on Södra's CEO, Mr Leif Brodén to not support Gunns' proposed pulp mill.
With more than 4,000 signatories in the first two days alone, Swedish pulp company Södra responded with 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!
However, there are issues that remain unresolved. 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.
