About this Report

Our sustainability reporting

As a publicly traded U.S. company, Domtar discloses issues deemed material in our reports to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Issues deemed important in the context of sustainability reporting should not be inadvertently confused with materiality in the context of a regulatory reporting standard. Voluntary sustainability reporting is an opportunity to go beyond the materiality tests of a regulatory report and present a more holistic perspective of our priorities, challenges and opportunities.

This report was prepared in accordance with the “core option” of the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards. This framework encourages companies to thoughtfully focus their sustainability reports on relevant issues that matter most to their customers, employees, shareholders, communities, advocacy groups and other stakeholders. For Domtar, these include:

Air and Greenhouse
Gas Emissions

Economic Performance
and Impacts




Fiber Procurement

Waste and Byproducts

Occupational Health
and Safety

Inclusion and


Employee Training and

and Effluents

Domtar routinely shares information about our sustainability efforts and performance at: www.domtar.com/en/how-we-work/sustainability-domtar. We also publish printed reports on a biennial basis to effectively expand our audience and share more details about our work. Domtar’s last report was published in 2017.

The data contained in this report cover all of our operations and include the most current annual data available. Baseline years for presenting historical data and trends have been selected to account for changing regulatory definitions and reporting methods to provide the truest perspective on our performance.

Some of the data contained in this report may be slightly different than what has been previously reported. This is due to adjustments resulting from additional data verification, ongoing efforts to standardize and improve performance indicators across the company, and changes to reporting methods (e.g., adjustments for the sale of renewable energy credits to other electricity users).

The data contained in this report have gone through a rigorous internal verification process. Given the nature and purpose of this voluntary report, we do not engage an external auditor.
