We've made our manufacturing facilities cleaner, quieter and safer. Domtar's recordable incident rate has been lowered by 50 percent since 2008, thanks to investments in safety systems, heightened attention to work procedures and improvements to personal protective equipment.

But data does more than just help tell our story. It helps drive our progress. Domtar is publicizing its "next step" safety improvement objective. To be clear, our ultimate goal remains unchanged: to eliminate workplace injuries. But we think we can reach that long-term goal by focusing on the short-term.

In other words, by benchmarking against what's clearly possible, it becomes far more probable. Domtar's next safety objective is to achieve a total frequency rate of 0.90 in 2016.

Sustainability at Domtar is our endeavor to take a longer-term view of creating and preserving shareholder value. We accomplish this by considering how we respond to and contribute to emerging opportunities and risks in the world around us. Our 2016 Sustainability Update provides insight into our priorities on the journey towards becoming a more sustainable business.
