Extending the Life of Paper

Paper products are often described as inherently sustainable—recyclable products made from renewable resources that are produced using renewable energy.
Article

At Sappi we are also committed to sustainable or “smart” consumption of paper, eliminating wasteful use. Only by using paper wisely and purposefully can we be assured of meeting growing demand for generations to come.

Curbing Environmental Concerns

Climate change and greenhouse gas emissions remain top of mind for many stakeholder groups.
Article

In fact, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) identified climate change as the most common issue of materiality across all industries. Their research found that climate change is material in 50 of the 57 industries for which they have issued standards to date. The wood products industry is no exception.

Beyond environmental concerns, energy is a major cost driver in our industry, and excessive energy costs have been cited as a major factor in the recent closure of several US pulp and paper mills.

Ensuring the Happy, Healthy Future of Our Forests

Responsible manufacturing begins with responsible procurement.
Article

For the wood products industry, it is paramount that our natural resources are used sustainably. Wood supplies the bulk of renewable energy that drives our mills, and cellulose fibers comprise the primary ingredient in our paper and pulp products, making healthy and abundant forests critical to the long-term viability of each of our core businesses.

Papermaking: Doing More with Less

In order to thrive in an ever-changing world, companies must constantly review their business strategies.
Article

Sustainable production and consumption depends on using materials and energy efficiently so that there are ample resources available for future generations. Consideration must be given to the full life cycle of a service or product to fully understand its impact. At Sappi, we take a holistic view of papermaking and understand that our sphere of influence extends beyond our mill gates from responsible sourcing through to the end of life of our products.

Fueling the Next Generation of Employees, Customers and Communities: Sappi’s Mark Gardner Reflects on Strategic Investments

“As I look back on the past year, I am gratified to see that the investments we have made in our mills are already paying dividends…[and] building a more diverse, sustainable business."
Article
As I look back on the past year, I am gratified to see that the investments we have made in our mills are already paying dividends. These investments have enabled us to expand our product lines and capabilities across all of our businesses—whether through the rebuild of PM 3 at Somerset, the coater at Westbrook, or the series of investments at Cloquet—all while reducing costs and driving productivity. We can now more effectively respond to changing customer needs and have created the platform for building a more diverse, sustainable business.

In manufacturing our products, Sappi North America utilizes each and every input to the greatest possible degree. By integrating flow loops into critical stages of the manufacturing process, we can capture and re-use excess material, and we further minimize waste to landfill by recycling anything we can’t re-use.

Magazines are NOT Dead, After All

Online entities are increasingly launching magazines to better connect with their customers
Blog

If you run an online search for the subject ‘magazines are dead’ you’ll get 70 million results in about 20 seconds. 70 million. And yet, as I scroll through the results, I find that many posts only use ‘magazines are dead’ to grab your attention because, when you actually read the posts, it’s clear that magazines, in fact, are not dead. Through posts, and through my experience and connections, I increasingly hear that online entities are launching magazines to better connect with their customers.
