Costco Talks Sustainable Seafood
Costco Corporation President Craig Jelinek (center) and Costco attorney John Sullivan shake hands after speaking with Greenpeace senior markets campaigner Casson Trenor (upper right) and other Greenpeace campaign supporters in front of Costco corporate offices near Seattle, Washington on June 29, 2010. Citing the company’s lack of a transparent and meaningful sustainable seafood policy, Greenpeace launched the next phase of its sustainable seafood campaign today targeting Costco. Although Costco tells its shareholders and customers that it supports sustainable seafood, it sells 15 of the 22 ‘red-listed’ seafoods including two of the world’s most critically imperiled species: orange roughy and Chilean sea bass.
