Domtar achieves FSC certification at four additional paper mills


    MONTREAL, April 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Domtar Corporation (NYSE/TSX: UFS)
announced today that it has achieved Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
Chain-of-Custody certification at four more of its paper mills. Its coated
groundwood mill in Columbus, MS, and uncoated freesheet mills in Hawesville,
KY, Kingsport, TN, and Marlboro (Bennettsville), SC are now FSC-certified.
    The number of FSC-certified Domtar sites now exceeds 40, and includes 11
paper mills, three market pulp mills, 14 off-site converting operations, and
regional replenishment centers located across its North American manufacturing
footprint. Chain-of-Custody certification is a rigorous tracking system that
identifies the origin of fiber used in certified products under FSC.
    "The addition of these four paper operations to our FSC-certified network
will enable us to expand our Domtar EarthChoice(R) line of environmentally and
socially responsible paper products and bring us closer to our customers
across North America," said Lewis Fix, Senior Director, Business Development
at Domtar.
    Over a decade ago, Domtar made FSC certification an integral part of its
sustainability strategy. Today Domtar is a recognized leader in sustainable
growth in the pulp and paper industry. This latest achievement further
demonstrates Domtar's commitment to responsible paper production and fiber
sourcing, as well as the expansion of its EarthChoice product line. It is for
these reasons that Domtar has earned the support of leading environmental
organizations such as WWF (World Wildlife Fund) - Canada and Rainforest
