Symbio and sustainability

In touch with nature. Sappi Symbio is an eco-responsible solution combining advanced performance with a high energy efficiency and environmentally friendly products.

The way the world works is changing fundamentally. Development of a sustainable global economy, which permits improving purchasing power and living standards without exhaustion of resources for future generations, requires a fundamental change in attitude. These shifts mean that we are recalibrating our approach to issues of commerce, community and consumption, focusing more intensely on the use and regeneration of our natural resources.

On ecological grounds, preferred products should be those that are based on photosynthetic CO2 fixation. The benefit of these sustainable resources is that they can be regrown within the foreseeable future, without negative side-effects on global biodiversity. Therefore, competitive products based on renewable resources need to be developed that have high quality, show excellent technical performance, and cause less harm to the environment than current products based on petrochemical materials.

Sappi Symbio premium cellulose fibres originate from renewable raw material wood, which is certified and manufactured in an environmentally responsible production process. Cellulose fibres improve the life cycle analyses from your product and process, compared to oil-based conventional materials, by considerably reducing the CO2 footprint. Moreover, Sappi Symbio can be reused and recycled.
