Yes, we care.
Because we value and respect natural resources, and want to use less of them. One of Stockstadt Mill’s environmental objectives is an annual reduction of at least 1 % in freshwater demand.
It was estimated that the relocation of Papermachine 1’s water supply from fresh to sedimental water would result in an annual reduction of 25,000 m³ of fresh water demand. In fact, once the relocation was completed, fresh water demand was reduced at this point by 1.8 % or 35,550 m³ respectively per year, the equivalent of 150 litres of water per tonne of paper!
Through a number of changes, Stockstadt Mill has surpassed its target, and reduced the fresh water demand for our uncoated paper line by 5 % compared to the previous year. With continuous efforts to reduce our demand for energy, we are working in a sustainable manner, and respecting our important resources by handling them sensibly.
We make Sappi eco-effective. How about you?
