Resolute Fights Back

Resolute Forest Products is responding after Greenpeace unfurled banners in Montreal earlier this week to denounce the company's forestry practices in the boreal forest.

In a release, the company says Greenpeace's actions are consistent with those it has taken since withdrawing from the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement a year ago.

Resolute also calls Greenpeace's allegations untrue, noting all of its woodlands are independently certified to one or more internationally-recognized standards.

It adds that only 0.2 per cent of the boreal forest is actually harvested with 40 per cent of the forest off limits to forest companies.
