Sappi North America's Employees Ideas that Matter program highlights winning projects
Through the structured Employee Ideas that Matter (EITM) program, Sappi North America employees bring their charitable ideas to life. For three years, employees have been applying for direct funding to benefit the nonprofit organizations that they are most passionate about, and the winners share $25,000 in corporate giving to support their selected causes. Funding can be used in many ways—from financing a project, sponsoring a trail cleanup, or providing new equipment or supplies.
This past year was very special for safety in Sappi North America (SNA). Our employees achieved their best-ever lost time injury frequency rate (LTIFR) result at 0.25. Everyone stepped up to make this achievement possible. For the entire year, we had only six lost-time injuries, and during the second quarter of the year, we had zero lost-time injuries—our ultimate goal and the first time it was ever achieved. On May 19, 2019, our Cloquet Mill employees operated 1.3 million hours without a single lost-time incident.
