Pledges toward net zero emissions have become common as global companies and industries look to address concerns about climate change. Domtar, too, is doing our part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and develop a path toward becoming a net zero emitter by 2050. We have been tracking and working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for more than a decade. By the end of 2020, we recorded a 27 percent reduction in total direct greenhouse gas emissions and indirect emissions from purchased energy at our pulp and paper mills since 2010. Our work to reduce our carbon footprint has also led to significant reductions in our emissions to air of nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, total reduced sulfur and particulate matter.
