Partnerships

With innovation and ingenuity, we are making our business and yours more eco-effective—reducing waste, emissions and maximising material and resource use at every opportunity. 
Concern is rising worldwide about the environmental impact of non-recyclable and non-biodegradable packaging. As a bio-based material, paper products are a vital and much needed alternative. To deliver sustainable paper packaging solutions, however, we must ensure that the wood is sourced responsibly from well-managed forests.
We’re unlocking the chemistry of trees to meet the challenges of a carbon-constrained world. 
We practise and promote sustainable forestry to ensure that forestland stays forested for generations to come. 
By reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and scaling up nature-based solutions, we're increasingly part of the solution to climate change. Our participation in the SmartWay programme in North America is one way we're doing it.
With innovation and ingenuity, we are making our mills eco-effective—reducing waste, emissions and maximising material and resource use at every opportunity. 
Learning a different set of skills
Pattern-cutting and sewing are not skills generally associated with fitters, millwrights and instrument technicians. However, one of the key things COVID-19 has taught us is the importance of flexibility.
Giving people the tools to succeed
Our focus is on equipping our people and the communities in which we operate with the life and career skills, knowledge and confidence to build on their own capabilities and further their development.
Actively participating in transformation
As a company headquartered in South Africa, with significant assets and people, transformation is an important component of our reputation and licence to trade.
Long-lasting change comes from within individuals and within communities. Against this backdrop, in 2015, Sappi SA launched the Abashintshi (’Changers’ in isiZulu) programme.
