Under Pressure from Greenpeace, Best Buy Seeks New FSC-Certified Paper Suppliers
Resolute Forest Products may be losing some of its business with Best Buy. The American-based electronics retailer announced Tuesday that it's looking at potential new paper suppliers.
Greenpeace said in a news release last month that Best Buy was using over 100 million pounds of paper to produce its flyers, from one of the world's last remaining ancient forests.
Best Buy said it's going to require companies including Resolute to provide paper from operations certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. It said it intends to increase the number of vendors it relies on, and will "meaningfully shift business" away from Resolute, its current primary supplier.
