Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Domtar Corp., Montreal, Que., Canada, this week announced that it has been selected as one of the Top Three of the 50 Best Corporate Citizens in Canada by Corporate Knights. An independent and top-ranked Canadian-based media company, Corporate Knights publishes the world's largest circulation magazine that focuses on corporate responsibility. The 50 Best Corporate Citizens List, announced yesterday (June 8), is based on environmental, social, and governance indicators found in the public domain, as well as an assessment of how these companies manage their carbon, energy, water usage, and waste production.

"We are not just a paper company," said John D. Williams, president and CEO of Domtar. "We are ‘The Sustainable Paper Company.' We believe that our ongoing association with major, respected environmental organizations and our sincere efforts in the domain of sustainability were key factors for our inclusion among the Top Three Corporate Citizens in Canada. We look forward to continuing these award-winning efforts and we will continue to raise the bar as a leader when it comes to sustainability in the pulp and paper industry."

Domtar engages with various environmental organizations to promote sustainability and earth-conscious projects, such as the World Wildlife Fund and Rainforest Alliance. Its work with The Nature Conservancy on the Working Woodlands pilot project is helping small forestry owners develop sustainable forest management plans that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. The company's award-winning Paper Because Campaign was launched this past year to reestablish paper as a sustainable, personal, and purposeful resource.
