Product stewardship

Concern is rising worldwide about the environmental impact of non-recyclable and non-biodegradable packaging. As a bio-based material, paper products are a vital and much needed alternative. To deliver sustainable paper packaging solutions, however, we must ensure that the wood is sourced responsibly from well-managed forests.
At Sappi, we believe that the right approach when managing timber is to integrate forest management–especially timber harvesting–into the local culture by sharing information and collaborating with local communities and the public, as showcased in these three coastal Maine harvests.
Resource efficiency is key in all operations at Kirkniemi Mill. We make more efficient use of resources throughout the life cycle of our products, starting with product development.
