Don’t just like us, CARE like us
Sappi Fine Paper Europe launches new sustainability website designed to inform and inspire
Sustainability is at the heart of everything Sappi Fine Paper Europe does. Throughout the entire paper chain, Sappi continually invests in its surrounding environment, the communities that the company works in, and the people and partners that they do business with. What they really care about is building a prosperous future for everyone involved. Their new website, www.sappipositivity.com is focused on sharing their experience and know-how in this realm, making sustainability an everyday reality for all, and inspiring others to join and build momentum.
Building on Sappi’s very successful Positivity Campaign, the website brings new and relevant information to stakeholders in an accessible and interactive format, responding to their ever-increasing information needs. In a nutshell, visitors to the website will be able to discover positive paper stories, Sappi’s green paper trail, as well as facts and figures and useful downloadable content. Sappi Fine Paper Europe’s recently published first regional Sustainability Report (2011), is one of the many sources of information for the website.
Jens Kriete, Environmental Manager at Sappi Fine Paper Europe said, “Informing and inspiring is part of Sappi’s essence. As a result of our experience with sustainability in the paper sector, we’re able to respond to the increasing information needs of our customers, while at the same time, inviting them to discover even more about who we are and what we do. Our new website is an exciting platform allowing us to connect with our stakeholders, something which is very important to Sappi.”
Notes to the Editor:
Sappi’s approach to sustainability is based on a holistic view of Planet, People and Prosperity (the 3P’s). These values and commitments underpin everything we do.
Planet: contributing to a world of biodiversity, renewable energy and environmental care
People: adding to the wellbeing, safety and health of employees and communities
Prosperity: aiming at long-term profitability and customer satisfaction through innovation and ethical conduct.
Sappi’s new sustainability website belongs to a group of current initiatives being run by Sappi, all with the objective of informing, inspiring and getting closer people, both inside and outside the company. Sappi cares, and wants to engage with others to care together.
