Another of FSC’s longest-term NGO supporters, the San Francisco-based Rainforest Action Network has added itself to the list of NGOs expressing serious doubts about the FSC. In a new posting on RAN’s website, the organisation’s Programme Director, Jennifer Krill, states that the credibility of FSC “continues to be threatened”. Krill specifically identifies the so-called Controlled Wood Standard as being problematic, and hints that RAN might withdraw its support for the organisation.
