Forests

In the communities where we work, we plant seeds of change and opportunity that enhance people’s everyday lives. Our goal is also to be a great place to work where all people are inspired in their role and empowered to grow to their full potential. Our sustainability ambassadors are key to deliver on this promise.
We practise and promote sustainable forestry to ensure that forestland stays forested for generations to come. 
We responsibly source woodfibre to ensure that the millions of hectares of forestland we rely on remain healthy today and tomorrow.

A flourishing forest provides a great many things–clean air, drinkable water, recreational opportunities, animal habitat, beautiful scenery, cool shade and, yes, paper and wood products.
At Sappi, we act as stewards of forestlands together with our suppliers. Our policies and practices aim to ensure that forests are expertly tended, harvested, and most importantly regenerated for healthy regrowth.
At Sappi, we believe that the right approach when managing timber is to integrate forest management–especially timber harvesting–into the local culture by sharing information and collaborating with local communities and the public, as showcased in these three coastal Maine harvests.
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.
Since we don’t own forestland in Europe, we work closely with our partners to uphold our responsible sourcing practices and encourage sustainable forestry. Our wood sourcing partners are Sapin in Belgium, proNARO in Germany, Papierholz in Austria and Metsä Forest in Finland. Market Pulp is also sourced from external suppliers based in Europe and the Americas.
