Outline of key actors and stakeholders in the Tasmanian timber industry
Position on Sustainability
Forestry Tasmania is a "Government Business Enterprise" that manages Tasmania's one million hectares of state forest and produces about three million tons of timber a year (Green, Ward & Mcconnachie, 2007, p. 95).
FT's overall position on sustainability is summed up in its Sustainability Charter:
1. Promote and support domestic processing and value-adding of wood products.
2. Maintain a sustainable supply of commercial timber.
3. Ensure an ongoing long-term supply of the highest quality eucalypt timber from native forests.
4. Ensure an ongoing long-term supply of specialty timbers.
5. Establish and manage plantations to maintain timber supply levels to industry.
6. Manage state forests to ensure an ongoing supply of leatherwood nectar and other non-wood products and services.
This is Tasmania's largest timber company (Herr, 2007). Company is ISO 14001 and Australian Forestry Standard certified for its forest management practices (Gay, 2009).
Company states that it promotes sustainable practices and is actively engaged in research to improve its efficiency and reduce its impact on the environment. Since 2003, external audits confirm that Gunns has consistently maintained its forest management practices with ISO 14001 and AS4708 guidelines (Gay, 2009).
Largest importer of Tasmanian woodchips (Milne, 2009).
Disinterested with regards to Tasmanian logging.
Australians and Tasmanians
Australian Population: 21,262,641 (July 2010 est.) (Australia, 2010); and,
Tasmanian Population: 507,084 (September 2010 est.) (Giddings, 2010)
More than 65 per cent of the Australian population and 69 per cent of Tasmanians want an end to the practice of clear-felling of old-growth forests (Green et al., 2007); however, 92 per cent of the Tasmanian community is opposed to the type of illegal protest activity seen in the Upper Florentine Valley during the first half of 2009 (Kloeden & Gordon, 2009, p. 11).
