Context info from the company
Looking at any single data point would not reveal the overall optimization. For example, the amount of solid waste generated increased, principally as a result of improved removal of solids from effluent treatment systems, which helps improve and maintain water quality. Simultaneously Domtar has substantially reduced the amount of material sent to landfills. Nearly half of the solid material once regarded as “waste” is now being diverted from landfills and is being beneficially reused.

Domtar has enjoyed working with WWF since 2010 to create the expectation of transparency within the industry. As the only North American fine paper manufacturer to participate in the EPCI since its inception, we’re proud to join WWF in leading the effort towards greater environmental responsibility.
