JP Morgan Chase, BlueLinx linked to illegal logging in Indonesia

Investigations by Greenpeace and Rainforest Action Network have confirmed that JP Morgan Chase client BlueLinx, America’s largest building products distributor, is smuggling legally disputed, undocumented timber out of Indonesia’s critically endangered rainforests and flooding the U.S. marketplace with artificially cheap lauan plywood.

The conservation community is calling on JP Morgan Chase and BlueLinx to immediately comply with a voluntary corporate embargo of Indonesian forest products already in place at Centex Corporation, International Paper and Lanoga Corporation.

This press release is from Rainforest Action Network. Through the years their nonviolent direct action campaigns have proven to be incredibly effective in forcing recalcitrant corporations to change their errant ways.
