Financial Times -- Suppliers of oil sands fuel shunned,
February 10th, 2010
From the Financial Times:
"Two big US companies have decided to avoid suppliers that source fuel from Canada's oil sands to curb their carbon footprints.
The decisions by Whole Foods Market, an organic grocery chain, and Bed Bath & Beyond, a household goods company, underline how industry is moving to fill the void left by inaction at Copenhagen and the failure of the US Congress to limit carbon emissions.
Both companies are responding to ForestEthics, a non-governmental organisation that last year began campaigning to lead the US corporate sector away from oil sands fuel, which has a higher carbon content than conventional crude oil."
