Sappi’s Laura Thompson Explains Why 2014 was a Pivotal Year of Change for the Paper Industry

2014 was a critical year for foundation building and refinement to position Sappi North America for the sustained future of Sappi’s employees, customers, investors and communities. Sappi's sustainability expert Laura Thompson reflects on the past year.
