Greenpeace is making peace with Resolute Forest Products, and withdrawing allegations the activist group made last December with regard to Resolute Forest Products and the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement.

Greenpeace Canada acknowledged its error in a statement to media, admitting that it was incorrect to say “that Resolute had breached the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement by approving and developing roads in “areas of suspended harvest” and that Resolute was secretly engaged in logging, contrary to the terms of the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement.”

These statements were repeated and republished in subsequent publications. Since learning the allegations were incorrect, Greenpeace has removed any reference to the statements from all its materials.

The group “sincerely regrets its error,” and “will continue to campaign for the protection of the Boreal Forest and advocate for solutions that benefit the forest, communities and workers.”

A spokesperson for Resolute Forest Products said at the time the allegations were made that Greenpeace’s statements were “erroneous, deceptive and misleading.”
