Sappi North America's Key Performance Indicators: Water

Multimedia with summary

All pulp and paper mills in North America use and treat water in accordance with comprehensive environmental permits. Overall, Sappi North America’s 2016 water use, total suspended solids and biological oxygen demand intensity metrics were in line with our 2015 performance. Our North American mills draw water from surface sources (rivers and lakes) and return treated water to the same primary sources. After on-site treatment at Cloquet, we send water to a publicly owned treatment facility, where it is treated further and then returned to Lake Superior.

Sappi North America's Key Performance Indicators: Fiber

Multimedia with summary

One hundred percent of our fiber is procured in accordance with the SFI® Fiber Sourcing standard as well as the FSC® Controlled Wood standard. These third-party programs provide assurance that wood-based products have been procured from well-managed forests and are legally harvested. While Sappi does not own any forestland in North America, our foresters provide active forest management services for landowners within our procurement zones.

Sappi’s Key Performance Indicators: Reducing Energy Consumption

Multimedia with summary

After achieving significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2013, we shifted the focus of our improvement work to energy intensity, or the total energy consumed to create a set unit of product. Analysis of our energy use employs a calculation method also used by the Department of Energy and the AF&PA. In this method, energy consumption from purchased electricity is calculated in terms of fuel inputs to account for different fuel efficiencies during power generation and efficiency losses in power transmission.
