FORT MILL, S.C., May 15, 2018 /3BL Media/ -- Award-winning news for Domtar, a leading global provider of pulp, paper and personal care products. The company is pleased to announce its 2017 Sustainability Report, “Working Smart for the Long Term,” has been named the winner in two categories of the Corporate Register Reporting Awards 2018  program (CRAA’18).  More than 121 entries submitted by 61 organizations across 6 continents were judged and Domtar won in the categories of Creativity in Communication and Openness & Honesty.

About Creativity in Communication

For the CRRA’18 Creativity in Communication category, voters were asked to choose the report that was a real pleasure to read, while at the same time 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. But for the CRRA’18 Openness & Honesty category, voters were asked to choose the report in which the company comes ‘clean’, telling both the good and the bad news in a manner that convinces the reader a balanced picture is being presented.

The CR Reporting Awards program is unique in its voting process, criteria and goals:

The 60,000+ eligible voters, based on 6 continents, are composed of a wide range of organizations including corporations, government agencies and authorities, NGO’s, academia, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) professionals, investors and analysts. They represent all major manufacturing, supply and service industries, including several of Domtar’s direct competitors. The CRAA’18 program covered 8 categories of competition and while CR’s criterion focused on Content, Communications and Credibility, voters’ comments revealed their independent judgment and innovative thinking went beyond those elements when choosing the winning reports. CR’s goal is to identify and acknowledge the most meaningful and effective reports through its awards program and thereby promote a direction in best practice reporting for both the public and private sector to share.
