MONTREAL—Domtar Corporation has released its 2012 Sustainable Growth Report, providing a first-year update on its 2020 sustainable business road map. The company said it’s tracking progress through a framework of 35 key performance indicators that cover the range of Domtar’s sustainability efforts, from increasing production efficiency and environmental footprint reductions, to promoting employee development, serving customers and contributing to host communities.

The report highlights a long list of achievements: the company’s best year on record for health and safety performance; close to 85-percent renewable energy use; decreasing greenhouse gas emissions intensity; and increasing FSC certified fiber use. The report gives additional focus to innovations that have resulted in almost half of what was previously considered mill by-product “waste” now providing economic value through beneficial re-use; greater employee engagement around sustainable business issues; and Domtar’s connections to local communities.
