Domtar's mill in Plymouth, North Carolina, proves the adage that sustainability is journey, not a destination.
The Plymouth Mill, which got its start making pulp and paper in 1937, faced a bleak future as paper consumption declined precipitously in the aftermath of the Great Recession. But Domtar’s entry into the growing personal care market, combined with Plymouth’s access to the right fiber resources, gave the mill a new lease on life
Visitors to Warriors’ Path State Park in Tennesse will enjoy a smoother hike this fall, thanks to the efforts of Domtar’s EarthChoice® Ambassadors (ECAs). These volunteers are committed to transforming communities where they live, work and play.
The 2020 political campaigns are not yet in full swing, but already paper is a leading vote-getter. Over the past several years, experts, advocates and voters in the United States have called for paper ballots to ensure the security and accuracy of vote counts. In response, more state and national lawmakers are moving in the direction of paper-based voting systems.
Improving employee safety in 21st-century manufacturing environments is a continual journey and one that’s becoming more and more personal at our Kamloops Mill. Our proactive safety measures involve each of our colleagues.
Thanks to a long history of effectively managing energy, including efforts to optimize our use of carbon-neutral biomass fuels, Domtar is well positioned to meet expectations for a lower-carbon economy.
We continue to invest in targeted projects to optimize and enhance the reliability of our manufacturing assets, and improve the efficiency of our raw material and energy use. These ongoing investments have incrementally improved our cost, climate and environmental profile, and we expect further progress in the years ahead.
Employees in Jesup, Georgia, partnered with first-grade teacher Kristyn May and James E. Bacon Elementary (JEB) to develop an outdoor classroom for the school’s garden project. The space is part of JEB’s Georgia Shape Grant initiatives promoting good nutrition and physical activity.
We proudly support Camp Blue Skies; an overnight camp for adults with disabilities. In 2018, Domtar volunteers worked with the camp to set up activities for campers, including zip lines, ropes courses, Frisbee games and post-lunch singalongs in the cafeteria.
Camp Blue Skies provides individuals with special needs a safe, friendly environment that can accommodate their physical and developmental challenges. The camp, which holds sessions in Georgia and North Carolina, works tirelessly to help serve a population that is largely underserved.
