Our Goals

Our Progress
Toward 2020 Goals


Reduce our recordable safety incident rate to 0.50 by the end of 2020, while increasing our focus and efforts on preventing more serious injuries. Reduced our recordable incident rate to 0.74, our best year on record and a 57 percent reduction since 2008. We continue to increase our emphasis on the behaviors of and barriers to a sustainable culture of safety excellence.


Establish EarthChoice® Ambassador (ECA) teams in all our facilities by the end of 2020, engaging our employees in our commitment to sustainability. Expanded our ECA program to 30 locations in four countries, covering 86 percent of our facilities. We are on track to meet our goal.


Increase the level of Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified fiber procured for our pulp and paper mills to 20 percent of total fiber used by the end of 2020. Procured 21 percent of total fiber used from FSC-certified sources, meeting our goal for a second consecutive year.


Reduce total direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and indirect emissions from purchased energy at pulp and paper mills 15 percent by the end of 2020 from 2010 levels. Reduced GHG emissions 15 percent since 2010, meeting our goal for a second consecutive year.


Reduce total waste to landfill from pulp and paper mills 40 percent by the end of 2020 from 2013 levels. Reduced amount of waste sent to landfills 19 percent since 2013 through source reduction and beneficial-use programs. After four years of good progress, the amount of materials landfilled increased in 2018. This increase was largely due to operational, reliability and weather-related issues at a few mills. Domtar remains committed to meeting our landfill reduction goal.


Develop a model for our pulp and paper mills to measure and more strategically manage the full cost of using water. Completed development of our full-cost-of-water model and began using it in project approvals in 2018 to further support water and energy conservation efforts.
