“History will judge us by the difference we make in the everyday lives of children” said Nelson Mandela in a speech at the United Nations in 2002. Decades on at Sappi we continue to make that difference through our ongoing investment Early Childhood Development (ECD).
Climate change has exacerbated the potential for forest fires. At Sappi, we practise sustainable forestry with fire risk management systems in place to ensure forestlands remain forested in South Africa and everywhere we operate.
A good, sustainable procurement strategy depends on strong relationships with suppliers, and we're committed to building those relationships to improve Sappi’s and our suppliers’ sustainability performance.
After rebuilding Paper Machine 1 at Somerset Mill to expand into the packaging business, we celebrated this engineering feat with a pop-up book made with our premium line of paperboard in an equally impressive way.
