Domtar’s Paper Trail site now available in French
By Cindy Macdonald
Domtar has made The Paper Trail, the company’s interactive site that helps customers trace the impacts of their paper purchases, available in French.
“The Paper Trail is an important tool for customers seeking to know more about the impacts of their purchases,” said Paige Goff, vice-president, sustainability and business communications at Domtar. “We are thrilled to now offer this deeper look into the supply chain to our French-speaking customers.”
Domtar has a corporate office in Montreal and is the largest integrated marketer and manufacturer of uncoated freesheet paper in North America.
The Paper Trail empowers customers to understand the impacts of their paper purchases. The site presents gate-to-gate impact estimates for Domtar products across five environmental categories, provides relevant context, and highlights both what the company is doing well and those areas it’s looking to improve upon.
“The tool allows customers to understand everything from the source of paper at a specific mill, to the environmental initiatives at that mill. It’s easy to use and customize to meet your reporting requirements” notes Andrew Craig, Director, Corporate Environmental Affairs at Royal Bank of Canada.
The Paper Trail gives users an unprecedented look at the faces and places of Domtar’s supply chain. Visitors will learn that paper production has been a part of the history of Windsor, Que., since 1864, when the Windsor mill became Canada’s first chemical pulp facility. Customers will also see that with more than 800 workers, Domtar serves as the town’s largest employer.
