The Rainforest Alliance is an international nonprofit organization that certifies forestry operations, ensuring that they meet rigorous standards for the conservation of natural resources and the rights and welfare of workers and local communities. It also works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior.
Domtar has worked with the Rainforest Alliance for many years on responsible paper production and fiber sourcing, starting in 2000 when Domtar forestlands in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York were awarded Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification by the Rainforest Alliance’s SmartWood Program
