At Domtar, sustainability is part of our DNA. It influences every decision we make and everything we do. We are continuously monitoring our progress against annual and long-term sustainability goals to ensure we meet or exceed industry standards. We also want to do what’s right for our customers, our employees and the communities in which we live and work.
In August, we published our 2016 Sustainability Update to share what we accomplished in 2015 toward pursuing our long-term sustainability goals. Here are some highlights.
Domtar is committed to reducing total direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions from purchased energy at our pulp and paper mills. Our goal was to reach a 15 percent reduction from 2010 levels by 2020. We achieved that goal five years early in 2015. In addition, Domtar’s greenhouse gas emissions per metric ton of pulp and paper products are less than half that of producers in the Asia-Pacific region.
