AFS Ltd Responds to ABC Report
The Australian Forestry Standard was referenced in a segment on the ABC's 7.30 Report on Tuesday 31 July 2012. The story, 'Planet Ark sails in to timber storm', included some negative commentary on the AFS.
At no time has the ABC contacted AFS Ltd to research the segment or any of the opinions expressed therein. The AFS Ltd Chairman has written to the ABC to address the unsubstantiated criticisms of the Australian Forestry Standard. The letter is available on the AFS Ltd website.
The content of the piece was largely focussed on Planet Art and a detailed, considered response from Planet Ark to the ABC can be found on the Planet Ark website.
