Domtar Corporation has released its 2011 Sustainable Growth Report, unveiling 35 key performance indicators that will shape the company's sustainability efforts out to 2020. This sustainability framework builds on years of industry leadership in forestry certification, mill-level environmental performance and longstanding ENGO collaborations.

This year also marks the first time Domtar is issuing a level-checked "B" Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) report, as well as the first time that outside perspective from sustainability experts in the private sector and civil society is being featured.

"The release of a key performance indicator framework is an important milestone in our long-term sustainability strategy," noted John D. Williams, DomtarPresident and Chief Executive Officer.  "By addressing sustainability in a systematic way we are making this company more resilient, better able to seize opportunities for innovation and growth, as well as more open to constructive input from our shareholders, customers, suppliers, and environmental partners.  All of this supports our evolution from papermaker to fiber innovator that positions us for success over the long term."
