About Creativity in Communication

The CRRA’18 Creativity in Communication category seeks to highlight reports that are a real pleasure to read, with the authors having given thought to both the content and the reader.  The award is for the report which best succeeds in getting its message across, using creativity as a defining factor.

About Openness & Honesty

It is easy to highlight the good news and ignore the bad. Finalists for the CRRA’18 Openness & Honesty category boast a report where the company comes clean’, tells both the good and the bad news, and which convinces the reader that it is presenting a balanced picture.

Vote for Domtar before February 28

The CRRA’18 is unique in that, rather than the winner being determined by a panel of judges, the decision is made through the votes of those interested in the Corporate Social Responsibility arena.  Voting is open to the public, although to ensure fairness, company employees are not permitted to vote for their own report. 

To vote for Domtar, visit http://www.corporateregister.com/crra , create an account, and make your selection before February 28, 2018. Winners will be announced in April via the CR Reporting Awards 18 Official Report.

Domtar is honored to be named a finalist for these categories in particular, as they stress the different approach the company takes to furthering sustainability and working smart for the long term. 

Thank you for your support.
