To promote ongoing forest conservation and environmentally responsible paper products, Montreal-based Domtar Corp. has expanded a licensing agreement with World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to now cover all of Domtar’s EarthChoice products, including office paper. The sale of all papers from EarthChoice, Domtar’s family of socially and environmentally responsible paper products, will now support WWF’s mission.

Domtar will make an annual contribution of (U.S.) $350,000 to WWF from the sale of its EarthChoice products. Since its launch, more than a million tons of EarthChoice papers have been sold, all of which have been certified to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and are publicly supported by both WWF-Canada and the Rainforest Alliance.

In addition to the EarthChoice licensing agreement, Domtar participates in WWF’s Global Forest & Trade Network, an initiative to eliminate illegal logging and improve the management of valuable and threatened forests.
