Anti-Plastic Legislation Creates Opportunities for Bioalternatives
A growing number of actual and proposed bans on single-use plastic products, such as grocery bags, straws and water bottles, are feeding a worldwide appetite for bioalternatives, such as reusable, refillable and/or recyclable products and packaging. As a result, we’re seeing renewed markets for existing paper-based products and new opportunities for innovation in plant-based biomaterials.

Innovation & Technology

Drone Solutions Enable More Efficient Land and Mill Monitoring
You’ve probably seen kids, hobbyists and amateur photographers using drone technology for fun, but drone solutions have a great deal more potential than an afternoon’s worth of entertainment. These small, unmanned aerial vehicles are useful for a wide range of applications, from logistics to manufacturing.

Responsible Production & Consumption

More Efficient Freight Transportation Reduces Environmental Impact

Lighter personal care products often have the opposite problem, completely filling the trailer despite rules that allow more weight. Learn how Domtar's commitment to sustainability touches every corner of the business, including the open road.


Looking to Hire Millennials? Sustainability Commitment Is Key
The face of the U.S.’s workforce is undergoing a vast and rapid change as an estimated 10,000 baby boomers retire each day. With nearly 4 million people calling it quits each year, this silver tsunami is creating a personnel gap that is being felt by a broad range of industries.

Filling the void is the generation that in 2015 became the largest in the U.S. workforce, according to the Pew Research Center — millennials, defined by the U.S. Census Bureau as those born between 1982 and 1998.
