Thriving sustainably webinar 3: Sustainable innovation in practice: A conversation with Sappi


For Sappi, sustainability is at the core of their business, from each tree harvested to every mill rebuilt. Learn how they’re unlocking the power of renewable resources to meet the needs of the planet and people while seeding prosperity for all.

We invite you to join us for a conversation with Sappi Sustainability and R&D leaders - Bernardo Semadeni, Director of Product Innovation, Beth Cormier, VP of Research, Development & Sustainability, and Krelyne Andrew, General Manager of Sustainability.

  • During this webinar, we will hear how innovation and sustainability are rooted deep within the DNA of Sappi as a globally recognized leader in developing a circular economy – building on what they should – not just what they can.
  • The team will share how Sappi balances growth and the need to act sustainably for people and the planet to develop products responsibly. And how they solve sustainability challenges with innovative partners and systems. 

We hope this conversation inspires you to take action and thrive sustainably in 2023.

About Sappi: 
Sappi is a leading global provider of everyday materials made from woodfibre-based renewable resources. As a diversified, innovative and trusted leader focused on sustainable processes and products, they are building a more circular economy by making what they should, not just what they can.

Sappi’s raw material offerings (such as dissolving pulp, wood pulp, biomaterials and timber) and end-use products (packaging and speciality papers, graphic papers, casting and release papers and forestry products) are manufactured from woodfibre sourced from sustainably managed forests and plantations, in production facilities powered, in many cases, with bio-energy from steam and existing waste streams.
