Old spruce, fir and pine trees in wilderness of a national park.
Join Paige Goff, vice-president of sustainability and business communications at Domtar; and Richard Donovan, senior vice president and vice president of forestry at Rainforest Alliance, in a Q&A discussion on how sustainability plays a role in the the manufacturing of pulp and paper products.
Starting with the facts, what does it mean to be “sustainable” in the pulp and paper industry? Aren’t pulp and paper products made from trees?
Paige Goff: Our industry, of course, depends on the forest, but this reliance strengthens our interest to keep forests as forests. Without a sustainable source of virgin fiber upon which to rely on, we’d be putting Domtar’s future at risk. We rely on the forest, and we rely on a healthy forest. In responsibly managed forests, trees are a renewable resource.
