Both organizations share the belief that the best way to keep forests standing is by adopting standards that promote the sustainable use of resources and conservation of biodiversity. To this end, Domtar has set the aspirational goal of procuring 100 percent of its fiber from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) certified by the Rainforest Alliance. RAINFOREST ALLIANCE CERTIFICATION The Rainforest Alliance thoroughly assesses candidates for FSC certification via detailed, on-the-ground audits that include: • • • • Species Inventories Forest Inspections Management Plan Reviews Input from Interested Parties Rainforest Alliance certification is awarded to forestry operations that meet these stringent FSC requirements. When a forestry operation achieves certification, they earn the right to display the FSC label and Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal on products and promotional materials, helping consumers make smarter choices. A RESPECTABLE MISSION With help from the Rainforest Alliance, farmers, forest managers and tourism businesses realize greater economic benefits by ensuring ecosystems within and around their operations are protected, and that their workers are well-trained and enjoy safe conditions, proper sanitation, health care and housing. The organization works to ensure millions of acres of working forests, farms, ranchlands and hotel properties are managed according to rigorous sustainability standards. These businesses are linked to like-minded consumers, who can identify goods and services that bear the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal or the Rainforest Alliance Verified™ mark.
