At Sappi, we’re not just talking about sustainability and our SDG commitments. We’re taking robust action and making measurable and continuous progress everywhere we operate. Progress that EcoVadis has now confirmed by awarding all three of our manufacturing regions platinum sustainability status for the third time. This achievement places Sappi in the top 1 per cent of companies the organisation reviewed in 2021.
