Climate change, deforestation, global warming. These are all hotly debated areas of sustainability that have become commonly used buzzwords in the public discourse.
However, news coverage and analysis primarily tend to focus on the technical aspects of these key issues, rather than detailing any human implications. For example, it is reported that deforestation is responsible for driving 17 percent of global carbon emissions, but what direct impact is it having on the 300 million people who call forests home?
As part of its Sustainable Forestry Principles, Domtar is committed to working closely with local indigenous communities — who make up nearly half of those 300 million residents — to ensure the forests remain for generations to come.
