In an open letter to the president of Resolute Forest Products Canada, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) has requested Resolute “immediately stop its discriminatory activities against FSC, and take appropriate corrective and preventive measures demonstrating respect to all of FSC’s statutes and all membership and Policy of Association requirements.”

The forest management certification organization says Resolute has made “repeated public attacks” on FSC’s management and policies, after the suspension of several of Resolute’s FSC certificates.

It notes that certification is voluntary but that one of the requirements of membership in FSC is to “maintain FSC’s credibility and to genuinely support FSC’s purpose, activities and reputation.”
