Our Approach to Sustainability

Sustainability at Domtar is our endeavor to take a longer-term view of creating and preserving value for our shareholders, customers, employees and communities. We do this by seeking a clear understanding of how our operations and products are interconnected with emerging opportunities and risks in the world around us. 

Each of our facilities operates in a unique context. That is why we strive to develop a systemic, holistic understanding of risks and opportunities as a facility level. This requires understanding the dynamics of the surrounding ecosystems and communities, and making informed asumptions about the future. 

We value our engagements with non-governmental organizations, which bring us new ideas and diverse perspectives. We believe they make us a better company, even if we do not always agree on every issue. 

We prize efficiency in everything we do. We strike to use resources responsibly and minimize waste. We acknowledge that our various goals can sometimes be divergent, requiring optimization decisions. 
Making good decisions require quality data, a precautionary approach to managing complex risks and a willingness to make trade-offs that reflect our values. 

Progress is realized by empowering employees with a license to lead and by establishing accountability for demonstrating performance. With the support of the Board of Directors, managers from across the company, including supply chain, manufacturing, finance, human resources and marketing, regularly come together to establish sustainability performance metrics and assess our progress.
