Domtar's The Paper Trail

This campaign features content brought to you from The Paper Trail, Domtar’s award-winning digital transparency tool. Sharing the environmental, social and economic impacts of Domtar’s supply chain, The Paper Trail gives users a unique look at the people and places behind Domtar’s products. Users are presented with gate-to-gate impact estimates across five environmental categories: Fiber, GHG Emissions, Water, Renewable Energy and Waste. Visitors get a better feel for where their paper comes from after viewing mill histories, stories and even photos of local landmarks from the town that makes the paper they use. Finally, facts about the company’s positive effects on local communities and role as a major employer throughout North America are highlighted in the tool. With consumers increasingly concerned with the impacts of their purchase decisions, The Paper Trail offers the transparency they deserve. Start your journey today at
