What is Resolute doing to ensure its sawmills are working sustainably?
To start, all of the forest lands we manage are in Canada, which is a highly regulated environment with active enforcement from federal and provincial governments. We adhere to strict, internationally recognized sustainable forest management (SFM) and chain of custody (CoC) standards that provide customers with the assurance that the wood fiber we use originates from responsibly managed forests.
All of the woodlands we manage or on which we hold significant harvesting rights are third-party certified to at least one of three globally recognized standards: Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®), Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), and CSA. And we have implemented fiber-tracking systems at all of our facilities that are also third-party certified to one or more internationally recognized CoC standards, namely SFI, FSC and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
