SPOTLIGHT

Between the EPCI 2015 and 2017, Resolute Forest Products notably reduced waste to landfill in their newsprint production.
 
Resolute Forest Products is a large holder of FSC forest management certificates in North America, which is a significant basis for WWF´s EPCI scoring on responsible sourcing. WWF encourages Resolute Forest Products to take leadership in Canada to re-certify its suspended and terminated certificates, demonstrating also the values of constructive engagement and good will the FSC system is built upon – this could nearly double the FSC certified area they own and would lead to improved scores in the EPCI.

The FSC process offers an opportunity for a constructive dialogue that arrives at commonly accepted sustainable solutions without the need for litigation. Working with FSC and other stakeholders in solutions oriented discussions will also assist long-term sustainability.
 
According to the new FSC standards in Canada, companies must demonstrate a clear commitment to indigenous rights under the UN declaration of the rights of indigenous people and towards the protection of woodland caribou habitat.
 

 

“We are an active participant in the Carbon Disclosure Project and we report on all sustainability material aspects using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines. Resolute’s focus on organizational transparency starts with a serious commitment to operating sustainably by carefully balancing the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, social and economic. This approach is a critical foundation to being a competitive organization.” - Seth Kursman, Vice President, Corporate Communications, Sustainability and Government Affairs, Resolute Forest Products

CONTEXT INFORMATION

Resolute Forest Products produces commercial printing papers, newsprint, market pulp and wood products.
