Domtar Corporation’s Sustainability Report Highlights a Better Future Together With Our Stakeholders
“We believe transparency – about both the achievements and the challenges – serves both our interests and the public’s interest well,” Williams says. “Not surprising, since they are intertwined. The interests of our customers, investors, employees and neighbors are more similar than dissimilar.” Here are some of the highlights of our sustainability story, based on our performance in 2018: •38 percent of the fiber procured for our pulp and paper mills was certified, including 21 percent from Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)-certified sources. •19 percent reduction in waste to landfill from pulp and paper mills since 2013, while beneficially using 69 percent of the manufacturing byproducts generated. •72 percent of the energy used in our pulp and paper mills came from renewable biomass fuels, along with self-generating an equivalent of 72 percent of the electricity they used. •15 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions at pulp and paper mills since 2010. •2 percent reduction in water use at pulp and paper mills since 2014.
