The Walt Disney Company has announced a new paper sourcing and use policy that sets up guidelines for paper used in the company’s day-to-day operations and its consumer products and packaging. Disney will work with NGO’s to identify and prioritize regions with poor forest management and high rates of deforestation, to guide its sourcing of paper from sustainable forest practices and conservation. While eliminating paper products containing irresponsible harvest fiber, the company will also minimize consumption of paper, and maximize recycled content.

Sodexo is accepting applications for its Stephen J. Brady STOP Hunger scholarships. Up to five students, from kindergarten to graduate school, will be selected from as national winners, with each receiving a $5,000 scholarship and a matching $5,000 grant for their anti-hunger charity of choice. Sodexo Foundation will also recognize 20 regional honorees with a $1,000 donation to their preferred charity. The closing deadline is December 5th of this year.

50 employees and their families from Domtar’s head office in Montreal have worked in a nearby park for a day of habitat restoration activities. The company’s volunteers were joined by local and international members of the Student Conservation Association. The event kicked off a partnership in which Domtar will provide support for the SCA’s urban initiatives in more than 20 U.S. and Canadian cities.
