MONTREAL, Feb. 21, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Domtar Corporation (NYSE: UFS) (TSX: UFS) has led the way in sustainable business practices since its early adoption of Forest Stewardship CouncilTM fiber certification in 2000, and its sustainability leadership continues to this day. As the purveyor of the largest, most comprehensive line of FSC® certified paper in North America through its EarthChoice® brand, Domtar is proud to be the premier sponsor of the GreenBiz Forum 2013 in New York City, February 19 - 21.
As part of the GreenBiz program, Domtar's Vice-President of Sustainability, David Struhs, will be taking part in a keynote live interview with Senior GreenBiz writer Marc Gunther on Thursday, February 21.
"I'm a big fan of getting behind the press release aspect of sustainable business performance and looking at the underlying trade-offs around economics, the environment and society," noted David Struhs. "The connective tissue of these decision points is not something that gets a lot of airtime, generally, so it's an area I'm pleased that Marc and I will have a chance to explore in this unique conference setting."
GreenBiz gatherings take place twice annually in cities around the United States. The events bring together thought leaders from across sectors and industries to share best practices and engage in cutting-edge discussions about the key sustainability challenges and opportunities facing business today.
