Acting on climate change

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. 
With innovation and ingenuity, we are making our mills eco-effective—reducing carbon emissions and maximising material and resource use at every opportunity.
By reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and scaling up nature-based solutions, Sappi is increasingly part of the solution to climate change.
On the scent of natural solutions
The wood-boring Cossid Moth (Coryphodema tristis) has a broad range of native tree hosts in South Africa.
Rethinking energy and society
Climate change has resulted in shifting seasons and climbing temperatures, threatening to deprive us of the very things – air, water, food and a safe place to live – we depend on for survival.
The circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources.
Weathering climate change
Sappi Forests owns and leases 390,000 hectares of plantations in South Africa which are under increasing threat from pests and diseases, as well as climate change.
The Earth’s average temperature is already more than 1º C higher than the pre-industrial era, and the last five-year period was the warmest five years on record. Climate matters to our customers and consumers.
