Why people are at the root of healthy forests
As a major wood supplier to Domtar, the company has worked with MTE to not only protect the forest land in the area – upon which they both depend – but also support the community through job creation. Specifically, Domtar has helped MTE achieve a certification under the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) program, along with its Chain-of-Custody handling of wood products. FSC certification ensures that forests are well managed, habitats are protected and local communities’ rights are respected. This partnership is evidence of a strong two-way relationship that benefits both the local tribe and workers in Domtar’s mills.
