Greenpeace's Rosoman says the world continues to consume wood and fiber, but the FSC can help meet this demand in a less-damaging way. "Currently most [wood and fiber] comes from natural forests but they are fast being logged out and converted," he told mongabay.com. "We are campaigning hard for an end to forest conversion and clear protection for the remaining large intact forest landscapes." "If plantations are planted on degraded lands (non-forest) or former agricultural lands this can provide a way of producing wood that can substitute wood from natural forests. If this can help take the pressure off natural forests it can be a positive thing, but we will never support the conversion of forests into plantation."
