Richard Garneau, president and ceo of Resolute Forest Products Inc. has been included Canada’s Clean50, a league recognizing leaders who have made the greatest contributions to sustainable development or clean capitalism in Canada.
“This designation represents an important endorsement of Resolute’s approach to our business and sustainability strategies, which are directly linked and interdependent,” said Richard Garneau. “Sustainability principles and objectives are reflected in our vision, corporate values and the way we do business across the Company every day.”
Canada’s Clean50 are awarded annually by Delta Management Group. The awards recognize 50 individuals or small teams, in 16 different categories; Garneau was chosen for the manufacturing and transportation sector.
“I am proud of the sustainability goals Resolute and our employees have achieved to date,” commented Garneau. “Carefully balancing environmental, social and economic priorities strengthens our competitiveness, making Resolute a supplier of choice for our customers, and an engaged civic partner in the communities in which we live and work.”
Resolute’s sustainability accomplishments include achieving 99.4% of its commitment to reduce carbon emissions by 65% below 2000 levels, an industry-leading goal one year ahead of schedule and making significant investments in conservation measures and fuel switching, including elimination of on-site coal use.
