Stop logging native forest for the Eden chipmill and make a full transition to plantation sourced wood
The change in ownership of the Eden chipmill presents a wonderful opportunity for a fresh start, to leave behind the conflict, cruelty and catastrophic carbon emissions of native forest woodchipping. ANWE will be welcomed in the region as a plantation wood only facility, bringing new hope and a future for the region’s forests, their wildlife and communities. It is time to leave behind this outdated industry.
Please reject burning and subsidising of native forest wood as renewable energy
Burning native forest wood for energy is not clean, renewable or green. Australian Government policy is currently not to allow renewable energy subsidies for native forest wood, but this is under threat. Further, logging native forest makes it MORE fire prone. It does NOT reduce risk.The woodchipping industry views burning native forest for electricity as a lifeline to enable continued destruction of Australia’s native forests as traditional markets for woodchips have collapsed. Protecting native forests is the quickest, safest and cheapest way to help stop climate change
Please stop using woodchips from native forest
Native forests are the world's best and cheapest carbon stores and are more valuable as homes to wildlife, as water stores and are essential to the survival of our planet. Other Japanese paper companies have made the switch to plantation woodchips, why can't Nippon Paper?
