See How Sappi Measured Success in 2016
Our pulp and paper products are derived from renewable resources, made with high levels of renewable energy, and are designed to be reused or recycled. While it is difficult to identify a more sustainable industry than forest products, not all companies perform equally when it comes to operating safely and sustainably.
We track our progress annually, and in the following pages offer an updated view of our performance in important areas of environmental and social responsibility. We monitor key metrics for fiber, emissions, energy usage and the impact of our operations on air, water and solid waste. We use this data when setting improvement goals related either to our operations or our interactions with our key stakeholder groups—employees, customers and our local communities.
We uphold the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a United Nations declaration that establishes the global foundation for the protection of basic human rights such as freedom of association and prohibitions on forced labor.
“In 2016, Sappi North America achieved many important milestones as we continue to transform into a more diversified, sustainable business that meets the needs of our customers, communities, employees and shareholders. I am proud of this year’s accomplishments because they were the result of focus, planning, holding ourselves accountable and great execution by collaborative teams of employees. At Sappi, we are committed to the three P’s of sustainability, People, Planet and Prosperity, because we know that all three in balance create long-term business success and a workplace that attracts and retains the best employees.” Mark Gardner, President and CEO Sappi North America
