As a global paper and pulp company, we aim to create value and grow faster than the market in a sustainable way to benefit our shareholders, customers, employees and communities in which we operate.
Through the power of One Sappi — committed to collaborating and partnering with stakeholders — we aim to be a trusted and sustainable organisation with an exciting future in woodfibre. We view our suppliers as key business partners who play an important role in helping us realise this vision.
Accordingly, we expect them to join our commitment to economic, social and environmental responsibility and to create an environment that replicates our focus on doing business with integrity and courage; making smart decisions which we execute with speed.
Sappi Procurement team members:
Our objective is to conduct a fair, competitive process whereby qualified suppliers can compete on a level playing field for Sappi’s business, to make supply decisions based on optimising the overall value realised through the purchase to Sappi, to document the commercial terms of the purchase in an appropriate form and to create win-win situations between ourselves and our key suppliers leading to mutually beneficial long-term relationships.
Suppliers are expected to earn their business with Sappi every day. Suppliers are encouraged and expected to engage in continuous improvement activities leading to improved value both to Sappi and for themselves.
Ultimately, through the application of the Seven Step Sourcing Process, commodity management, market analysis and other sound procurement practices, our objective is to provide a competitive advantage for Sappi in its very competitive business environment.
Sappi Procurement team members are expected to operate at the highest ethical standards. No factors, other than those established by the internal team as bringing value to Sappi, should be or will be considered in the supplier selection process. For that reason, Sappi Procurement team members do not accept any kind of gifts from suppliers or potential suppliers.
