Great Bear Rainforest Agreement

The deadline for completing the Great Bear Rainforest Agreements is only nine months away. Will the province of British Columbia ensure new logging rules will increase conservation enough to sustain the health of this magnificent forest ecosystem? That’s the challenge. We know they will do something. But will they do enough?

It looks promising, but we’re not there yet. We need your help to ensure the BC government completes the Great Bear Agreement within the next nine months. Sign our petition to these leaders now! http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/281/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=12941

Just last week ForestEthics Solutions co-hosted a Great Bear Rainforest Customer and Investor Roundtable with our allies (Greenpeace, Sierra Club, and Canopy) along with representatives from 27 very large paper and lumber buyers from across the globe (including Home Depot, Lowes, Sprint and Kimberly Clark). We all share a common interest: to see the Great Bear Agreements completed.

There is a lot at stake for British Columbia’s reputation and forests. BC’s Minister of Forests, Steve Thomson, was the keynote speaker at the event. He said loud and clear that the Great Bear Agreements are a priority of the provincial government.

Let’s make sure they don’t fumble in the home stretch.

The recently elected provincial government meets together in the British Columbia legislature for the first time on June 26th. Over the next 100 days provincial representatives will meet with First Nations, logging industry, and environmentalists who have been working hard to implement the Great Bear Rainforest Agreement.
