Pattern-cutting and sewing are not skills generally associated with fitters, millwrights and instrument technicians. However, one of the key things COVID-19 has taught us is the importance of flexibility.
The barriers to entry to tree-farming are high, and unaffordable for many. That’s where our tree grower enterprise development initiative, Sappi Khulisa, comes in.

In many isolated rural areas in South Africa, there is limited access to formal clinics and hospitals. Sappi is helping to close the gap of limited access to government-run clinics and hospitals.
Sappi Forests owns and leases approximately 390,000 hectares of plantations and outsources planting, harvesting and other operations to contractors.
For 10 years the wastewater had been running hot from the bleachery at our Stockstadt Pulp Mill in Bavaria, Germany. Where others just saw heat, however, Kai von Groddeck saw opportunity. As a mechanical engineer, he knew he could transform this wasted heat into a new energy source for the mill. 
With innovation and ingenuity, we are making our mills eco-effective worldwide — reducing waste, emissions and maximising material and resource use at every opportunity. At Ehingen mill in Germany, we achieved a big eco-effective ‘win’ in 2019 by substantially increasing the amount of pulp we produce at the mill instead of purchasing it on the market.
Water is vital to all life, and especially to our business. Water not only nourishes trees but is used to make pulp and paper, generate steam power and so much more in our mills. That’s why we take so seriously our role as responsible water stewards in the regions where we live and work.   
Kirkniemi Mill, located in a lakeside city just one hour’s drive from Helsinki, produces far more than exceptional coated papers destined for high-quality printers. Thanks to a project with the Länsi-Uusimaa Water and Environment Association, the mill is also supporting the revitalisation of threatened aquatic species in nearby Mustionjoki River.
Seeding and growing human potential is at the heart of sustainability at Sappi—beginning with our own people and extending to the communities where we operate around the world. In Europe, we are especially focused on programmes that support youth.
