FPC: Softwood Industry Strategy for Western Australia

Six steps for a vibrant, clean and green industry in regional Western Australia.

The forest industry is the world’s ‘greenest’ industry – its products are renewable, recyclable and carbon storing – with the right policy settings; the potential for the industry to grow is enormous. Responsibly sourced wood is the only renewable building material available, it is light, strong and durable. The industry is expanding with new customers in the new emerging bioeconomy.

It is our objective to facilitate a vibrant forest industry in Western Australia. Following the recent decision to retain ownership of the plantation estate – the State Government will be investing to expand these assets that are the foundation of the industry.
