Cooking with gas: circularity in action
Matane Mill produces its own biogas from raw process wastewater using anaerobic reactor technology.
Sharing value differently
In South Africa, many of Sappi’s operations are situated in rural areas where poverty is rife, unemployment is high and job opportunities are limited.
A responsible solution
There is a global movement to limit or eliminate solvent-based casting systems in order to reduce chemical waste and pollution.
The circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources.
Weathering climate change
Sappi Forests owns and leases 390,000 hectares of plantations in South Africa which are under increasing threat from pests and diseases, as well as climate change.
Unlocking wastewater opportunities at Lanaken Mill
In June 2019, Sappi Europe completed the re-build of PM8 at Lanaken Mill. The mill can now produce woodfree coated paper in addition to lightweight coated paper.
Cleaning up
In an uncertain world, the need for sanitiser driven by COVID-19 is certain to remain. Achieving the desired viscosity of sanitising gel can be challenging.
In 2020, Sappi North America launched Verticals: Fashion Marketing, the second instalment of our educational series for marketers, ahead of New York Fashion Week.
Working as water stewards
According to the World Resources Institute, the Southern African region is characterised as an area of high water stress. Which is why we try to make every drop count.
The Earth’s average temperature is already more than 1º C higher than the pre-industrial era, and the last five-year period was the warmest five years on record. Climate matters to our customers and consumers.
