Supporting communities

Compassion and humanity. Those are the attributes of ‘ubuntu’. And that’s the spirit Sappi demonstrated during the Covid-19 pandemic in a number of different ways.
Long-lasting change comes from within individuals and within communities. Against this backdrop, in 2015, Sappi SA launched the Abashintshi (’Changers’ in isiZulu) programme.
Driving holistic Enterprise and Supplier Development
Small businesses have been called ‘the backbone of any economy’. They fuel local growth and development, sustain workers in meaningful employment and provide vital services.
In November 2019, we announced our intention to make investments totalling up to ZAR14 billion over the next six years in our South African operations.
Building communities through the power of sports
Sappi partners with the Abashintshi to make sports days come to life by sponsoring team prizes and trophies.
