The Sustainable Choice

It's not just about preserving our forests and resources—although that's extremely important. It's also about preserving the integrity of your communications. That's why Sappi has attained the highest levels of third party certification possible for a paper company.

The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification—an independent, nonprofit, non-governmental organization—works with forest managers, paper and timber companies and their external certifiers to assure that the world’s forests are managed sustainably for the benefit of future generations.
