At Domtar, we continue to lead in environmental sustainability, with our work rooted in responsibility, efficiency and engagement. We were the first forest products company to become FSC-certified, and now we’re working to understand what’s next in sustainable forestry. As we move forward in our sustainability journey, we’re exploring blockchain technology as a way to increase transparency in our supply chain. “It’s natural that we are looking ahead to what may come next,” says Paige Goff, Domtar’s vice president of sustainability. “We’re researching ways to incorporate blockchain technology into our sustainability efforts so that we can demonstrate even greater transparency to our stakeholders. We think this technology can work hand in hand with our existing certification efforts and with environmental organizations to make our sustainability reporting process more robust and less complex.”
Heinzel Group is a member of the “4evergreen” alliance, which strives to increase the share of fiber-based packaging in order to sustainably reduce the impact on climate and the environment. In addition, the alliance aims to increase knowledge and raise awareness of the advantages of fiber-based materials in society. Among other things, the initiative advocates the development of optimized collection systems and appropriate recycling infrastructures.
Members of the “4evergeen” alliance are represented throughout the entire fiber-based packaging value chain: paper, board and packaging producers, technology and material suppliers, waste sorting and collection companies, and retailers.
