Commenting on the result, Sappi Chief Executive Officer Steve Binnie said: “A good performance from the European and North American packaging and specialities segment and satisfactory results from the graphic paper businesses were not enough to offset the significant impact from the unprecedented and markedly lower dissolving pulp (DP) prices."
Paper has long been the number one recyclable mono-material. Accordingly, the market leader Sappi has expanded its portfolio of barrier papers and is now offering businesses a vast range of innovative packaging paper solutions.
Cepi, the European association representing the paper industry, has announced a new alliance called 4evergreen. The aim of the alliance is to boost the contribution of fibre-based packaging in a circular and sustainable economy that minimises climate and environmental impact.
