Supporting communities

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.
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.
Sharing value differently
In South Africa, many of Sappi’s operations are situated in rural areas where poverty is rife, unemployment is high and job opportunities are limited.
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 the communities where we work, we plant seeds of change and opportunity that enhance people’s everyday lives. Our goal is also to be a great place to work where all people are inspired in their role and empowered to grow to their full potential. Our sustainability ambassadors are key to deliver on this promise.
Sustainability is a key focus across Sappi, but at Maastricht Mill, the team has gone one step further. Maastricht is sponsoring six young people who have officially become the mill’s Sustainability Ambassadors. 
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.

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.
