Climate change

Sappi’s international Revolving Credit Facility (RCF) of EUR 515 million benefits from our newly developed Sustainable Financing Framework. This is more proof of our sustainability promise and contributions to the circular economy.
The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) has approved our target to reduce carbon emissions 41.5% per ton of product by 2030, as well as our commitment that 44% of our suppliers by spend have science-based targets by 2026.
Working forests are vital to fighting climate change and Sappi is well-positioned to make a difference.
