Sappi has become education partner for EcoPrint 2012 to reflect its commitment to sustainable production and regeneration.
Eric Van den Bruel, marketing and product development director, Sappi, said: “We are very excited about the EcoPrint initiative. Sustainability is core to the print industry in general, but we need to work together to make sure that our industry is positioned as such. By bringing together all the elements of the print supply chain, EcoPrint will facilitate exchange and collaboration which is key to a strong sustainable future for our industry.
“Within Sappi, we are building on our successful Positivity Campaign launched last year to develop a more extensive sustainability focused website to capture all the efforts that we are making in that area. We look forward to launching it in the autumn.”
Sappi Fine Paper Europe (SFPE) has been publicly reporting progress on sustainability initiatives since 2008 as part of a global sustainability report issued annually by Sappi Ltd after the financial year-end. In 2012, Sappi Fine Paper Europe launched its own regional report for the first time, allowing for a deeper regional focus that reflects local markets and aspects.
