Our focus is unlocking the power of renewable resources to benefit people, communities, and the planet. But it’s also about unlocking our rich history of ‘firsts’, our significant investment in research and development R&D, as well as the expertise and experience of our multi-talented people.
We leverage these to connect with you and reach a common understanding of real-world challenges. We then move from inspiration to implementation to co-create relevant, next-generation solutions that add value to your business and to our own. The technological breakthroughs are within reach: We just need to work together, invest in them and be bold in adapting them to bring them to market.
Innovation is embedded in Sappi’s DNA. It comes from connecting with our customers and understanding their needs.
From our community liaison officers and sustainability ambassadors. From all our people who think of different solutions to tried and tested ways of doing things every day. Solutions that add financial, societal and environmental value. Solutions that build a resilient, thriving world.
Like our customers and other stakeholders, we share a vision of an alternative future – a world in which we can breathe clean air and where resources are plentiful, with enough to sustain us all.
To achieve this, we are implementing new technologies that enable more circular business models. We are also focusing on new, competitive technologies to lower energy consumption and increase our use of renewable energy, expanding product lifecycles and reducing waste. And we’re driving programmes that ensure our people and communities share in our success. Join us in actively helping to transform the future.
Early identification of trends. Persistence and willingness to challenge the status quo. Disruptive technology.
These are the key factors underpinning our approach to collaboration and partnerships. This approach has helped to enhance industry and sustainability standards globally. It’s also helping us to transform the future by collaborating with our partners to drive the renewable innovation that ensures their success as well as our own.
Our long history of continuously innovating and commercialising new products and processes has given us a deep understanding of the innovation process. We work tirelessly to understand the needs of our customers and to meet their every expectation. We aren't afraid of the challenges ahead, so let's partner and transform the future – together.
Focusing on high-value sectors
Ideas are everywhere. But they are only valuable if they can adapt to market supply and demand and have the potential to grow profitability while respecting the boundaries of the planet. We can help you identify those ideas with significant potential and transform them into relevant solutions created from innovative, biobased and renewable materials.
We have the expertise, ingenuity and experience to help you optimise your return on investment. Together we can leverage our synergies, co-create and break into new and adjacent industries, which are difficult to enter and have the potential to generate higher margins.
