Domtar’s digital transparency tool – The Paper Trail – now available in French

domtarpapertrailfrence1-inDomtar Corporation, the largest integrated marketer and manufacturer of uncoated free-sheet paper in North America, has announced that The Paper Trail, its interactive site that helps customers trace the impacts of their paper purchases, is now available in French. The Paper Trail site presents gate-to-gate impact estimates for Domtar products across five environmental categories, provides relevant context, and highlights what the company is doing well as well as those areas it’s looking to improve.

As supply chains continue to grow in complexity, it’s getting harder to verify where a printer’s paper comes from, much less the social and economic impacts associated with its manufacture, said Domtar. The Paper Trail gives users a close, clear look at Domtar’s supply chain. The tool allows customers to understand everything from the source of paper at a specific mill, to the environmental initiatives at that particular mill.

“The Paper Trail is an important tool for customers seeking to know more about the impacts of their purchases,” said Paige Goff, Vice President of Sustainability and Business Communications at Domtar. “We’re thrilled to now offer this deeper look into the supply chain to our French-speaking customers.” The Paper Trail was recently awarded with the Environmental Strategy of the Year Award at the 2015 Pulp and Paper International (PPI) Awards, which recognizes the achievements of companies, mills and individuals in the pulp and paper sector.

Domtar Corporation designs, manufactures, markets and distributes a wide variety of fibre-based products, including communication papers, specialty and packaging papers, and absorbent hygiene products. The foundation of its business is a network of wood-fibre-converting assets that produce paper grade, fluff and specialty pulp. The majority of its pulp production is consumed internally to manufacture paper and consumer products. Domtar brands include Cougar, Lynx Opaque Ultra, Husky Opaque Offset, First Choice, EarthChoice, and Xerox Paper and Specialty Media. In 2014, Domtar had sales of $5.6 billion from some 50 countries. The company employs about 9,800 people worldwide.
