Corporate Integrity Tossed Out the Window – KFC Cancels Again

Earlier this month, Dogwood Alliance was scheduled to meet with executives at KFC to discuss the company’s paper packaging and how they could end the destruction of endangered forests in the South by adopting a sustainable packaging policy. This meeting was scheduled following a public statement made by CEO David Novak at the company’s Shareholder meeting in May saying that his sustainability team should meet with representatives of our organization. At the eleventh hour, we received an email from Chief Sustainability Officer Roger McClendon cancelling the meeting.
