Climate change

By reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and scaling up nature-based solutions, we're increasingly part of the solution to climate change. Our participation in the SmartWay programme in North America is one way we're doing it.
With innovation and ingenuity, we are making our mills eco-effective—reducing waste, emissions and maximising material and resource use at every opportunity.
We responsibly source woodfibre to ensure that the millions of hectares of forestland we rely on remain healthy today and tomorrow.
The 4evergreen alliance is an unprecedented industry collaboration that Sappi is proud to have joined in 2019. Never before have businesses and organisations from every part of the fibre-based packaging value chain joined forces for a common cause.
Yes, pulp and paper manufacturing is energy intensive. But with Sappi, the energy we both consume and produce is increasingly green AND beneficial to surrounding communities. Take a look at what we’ve achieved at Gratkorn mill and beyond in the surrounding municipalities in Austria. 
Resource efficiency is key in all operations at Kirkniemi Mill. We make more efficient use of resources throughout the life cycle of our products, starting with product development.
For 10 years the wastewater had been running hot from the bleachery at our Stockstadt Pulp Mill in Bavaria, Germany. Where others just saw heat, however, Kai von Groddeck saw opportunity. As a mechanical engineer, he knew he could transform this wasted heat into a new energy source for the mill. 
Mapping the new world of climate change
A preliminary climate change investigation conducted by Sappi Forests’ scientists indicated that climate change is likely to be greater in Southern Africa compared to the world average.
A multi-pronged response to climate change
Climate change can stress forests and plantations through higher mean annual temperatures, altered precipitation patterns and more frequent and extreme weather conditions.
Balancing the 3Ps at Saiccor Mill
Project Vulindlela is our multi-billion-rand expansion project to boost Saiccor Mill’s dissolving pulp (DP) capacity by 110,000 tons per annum. The project has significant benefits for people, the planet and prosperity in South Africa.
