Domtar Helps Create New Model For Responsible Forest Management With Group FSC Certification

Partnership approach will provide market with more socially, environmentally and economically sustainable paper options

TICKER SYMBOL (NYSE: UFS) (TSX: UFS)

ASHDOWN, AR, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Domtar Corporation (NYSE: UFS) (TSX: UFS) today announced the culmination of a precedent-setting two-year partnership process that saw 55 landowners in the Texarkana area achieve Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC ®) group certification.  With the Ashdown Mill's strong support, the Four States Timberland Owners Association (FSTOA) was successful in receiving FSC Forest Management Certification on 70,000 acres of forestland.

Since Domtar's first FSC certification of forestland in upper New York State in 2000 and the subsequent formalizing of a collaboration with Rainforest Alliance in 2005, the company has maintained an industry-leading position that now sees it offer North America`s broadest range of FSC certified paper through the EarthChoice ® line of papers.  In addition, Domtar has set an ambitious goal of eventually procuring 100% of its fiber from sources that are certified to the FSC standard.

"Working together, we have achieved 'gold standard' certification from the 'gold standard' certifier, the Rainforest Alliance," stated Bob Grygotis, General Manager of the Ashdown Mill.  "This is not the end but in fact the beginning for us in continuing to expand the availability of FSC wood for Ashdown and FSC certified paper for our customers."

"We have raised the bar for private land certification in the south, and we look forward to seeing the model built in Ashdown being replicated and expanded on throughout our mill system,"  added Lewis Fix, Domtar's Vice-President of Pulp Sales and until recently, the company's Vice-President of Sustainable Business and Brand Management.  "This is a perfect example of how our longstanding collaboration with the Rainforest Alliance continues to help us deliver on our promise of socially and environmentally responsible paper manufacturing."

"We applaud Domtar and the Four States Timberland Owners Association for their hard work over the past two years as they strove towards certification," said Tensie Whelan, president of the Rainforest Alliance. "This achievement reflects the Association's true commitment to responsible forest management and we look forward to helping them expand on their efforts."
