Forests

Sappi Limited, a global forest products leader, is proud to announce that its South African division has been awarded the first ever Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) forest management certificate in South Africa.
Sappi has achieved a major industry first in South Africa and a win for sustainable forestry in the country.
Graeme Wild, Sappi's Group Head of Investor Relations and Sustainability, outlines how we're meeting the challenges of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) head-on.
At Sappi, we're cultivating more value and purpose from every tree. With recyclable woodfibre products, we're accelerating the transition to the circular bio-based economy our planet demands. 
While the basics of papermaking process has changed very little over the centuries, woodfibre only became the main raw material for mass paper production in the mid-19th century. The key advantage of using woodfibre is that it is a natural renewable resource.
Technical Innovation Awards
The internal Technical Innovation Awards (TIA) underscore our view that innovation is not an end in itself, but an integral aspect of our business. It’s a way of operating that provides sustainable, competitive advantages and ensures we grow, flourish, and progress.
By reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and scaling up nature-based solutions, Sappi is increasingly part of the solution to climate change.
On the scent of natural solutions
The wood-boring Cossid Moth (Coryphodema tristis) has a broad range of native tree hosts in South Africa.
Rethinking energy and society
Climate change has resulted in shifting seasons and climbing temperatures, threatening to deprive us of the very things – air, water, food and a safe place to live – we depend on for survival.
Diving deep into more sustainable pulping technology
Currently, pulping of wood to isolate cellulose fibres for paper production uses energy-intensive technologies developed more than a century ago that require fossil chemicals.
