Educational and environmental programs took center stage for our EarthChoice Ambassadors (ECAs) in 2018, with more than 11,500 volunteer hours spent focusing on communities where we live, work and play. With nearly double the amount of volunteer hours from last year, our ECA chapters are committed to making the world a better place.
ECA, our volunteer-based, employee engagement program, began in 2010 to help promote literacy, health and wellness, and sustainability through education and environmental programs. ECA members practice and promote sustainable practices by focusing on our customers, employees, company and communities.
Currently, 30 ECA teams serve in four countries, and we have committed to establish chapters in every Domtar facility by 2020.
“This year, we worked on taking some of our events a step further by developing more impactful programs in our communities,” says Heather Stowe, Domtar’s corporate social responsibility manager. “We held more than 200 activities this year that support our mission and educate our communities on our industry, such as incorporating papermaking sessions into First Book events and offering tours of our facilities to students and teachers.”
