Sustainability

Surrounded by the scenic mountains and forests of Trentino in northern Italy, the over 130 employees at Condino Mill are especially conscious of their environment. Finding ways to become more eco-effective —reducing waste, emissions and maximising material and resource use — is a challenge they have embraced with enthusiasm and ingenuity.
Sappi is on a journey towards greater diversity and inclusion, cultivating a culture where all people can realise their potential. Carmignano mill just outside of Venice is helping to show the way.
Sappi has achieved a major industry first in South Africa and a win for sustainable forestry in the country.
The EU and its Member States are leading the world towards the sustainable, low-carbon future agreed in the Paris Climate Accord and recently affirmed in the European Green Deal.
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. 
We’ve learned that what’s in your paper is only part of the picture. Responsible sourcing of materials is critical, and we must also consider the environmental impacts of manufacturing—including the impacts associated with processing recovered paper.
With innovation and ingenuity, we are making our mills eco-effective—reducing carbon emissions and maximising material and resource use at every opportunity.
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.
At Sappi, we’re unlocking the power of trees to make every day more sustainable – for the customers we serve, the communities where we operate and the planet we all call home.
