Commenting on the group’s results, Sappi Chief Executive Officer Steve Binnie said: “The group’s performance over the past year was severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, the related government lockdowns and the ensuing economic after-effects. While the first half of the year was satisfactory given that we started the year with dissolving pulp prices at historic lows, the third quarter saw the full impact of Covid-19 before a gradual recovery began in the fourth quarter, in particular for Dissolving Pulp (DP).
