The link below takes you to the report our president, Elizabeth Perey, wrote for our AGM.


The Florentine Protection Society has always been aware of the importance of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. Austra Maddox and Juliet Lavers have been our FSC delegates. This has involved learning as much as possible about the Forest Stewardship Council and representing FPS at relevant environment group meetings.  In late 2013 FSC International called for submissions regarding the standard for controlled wood. Austra Maddox made a submission on behalf of FPS. Thanks Austra.
