A Word From Sappi North America's Director of Sustainability, Sandy Taft

Sustainability leader reflects on 2020 and shares plans for the next five years
Article

The words that first come to my mind when I reflect on the past year would be ‘interconnectedness’ and ‘adaptability.’ The profound impact of the pandemic has touched so many different aspects of our lives—the ways we live, work, and connect with each other seemed to change overnight—all with the single goal of mitigating unnecessary damage and suffering. Much like pandemic prevention, sustainability is a global group effort. Our collective success depends on each one of us thinking about our long-term impact when making decisions today.

Pulp and Paper Mills Reduce Waste

Efficient use of raw materials improves front-end cost savings and reduces environmental impact
Multimedia with summary

The efficient use of raw materials improves front-end cost savings, reduces environmental impact, and lowers costs associated with waste processing. To achieve these benefits, we have separate goals for the pulping and papermaking process areas. For the pulp mills, we targeted a 10 percent reduction in losses by 2020, whereas for the paper mills, we established a 5 percent reduction goal by 2020.

With respect to pulp mill losses, we have surpassed the five-year goal, reaching an approximately 13 percent reduction over the 2014 baseline.

Fresh or Recycled Fiber - Which Is Better?

Article

The role our forests play in mitigating climate change is gaining greater attention. There has been a push to preserve our forests and use more recycled content in paper or packages. While it can be complicated to decide which is better—using virgin fiber or recycled fiber—there is an answer. It comes down to how that fiber will be used. And yes—in some cases, more recycled fiber means more GHG emissions.

Article

Since its inception in 1999, Sappi’s Ideas that Matter (ITM) program has granted nearly $14 million to help fund a wide range of social impact causes ranging from sustainable food systems to healthcare to climate change. Although the pandemic put much of the world on pause, Sappi’s ITM recipients were busier than ever with their world-changing projects. We were not surprised to watch how this community continues to adapt in the face of so much uncertainty.
