BOSTON, May 2, 2024 /3BL/ - Sappi North America Inc., a leading producer and supplier of diversified paper, packaging products and pulp, today announces a notable win from the Hermes Creative Awards for its Power of Trees campaign, receiving a Gold Award in the Video TV Ad category.

Trees benefit us in every part of the day, from a morning box of cereal to the shoes we wear, to our bed sheets. In “The Power of Trees,” we demonstrate woodfiber’s potential as a material of the future because of its renewable, regenerative and recyclable capabilities. It also highlights Sappi’s responsible forestry management. Our practices not only ensure the health of the forest and enhance the biodiversity of its habitat, but they also contribute to the circular economy by introducing sustainable and recyclable woodfiber into the production stream.

“This campaign speaks directly to our core mission of harnessing the power of trees to make life more sustainable and brings awareness to the many sustainable and renewable products that can replace those made with fossil fuel-based materials,” said Patti Groh, Director of Communications. “In addition to creating awareness around the power of trees, this campaign serves to bolster employee’s pride and showcase to the next generation of employee just how innovative, sustainable, and forward-thinking the paper and packaging industry is.”

The Hermes Creative Awards honors the messengers and creators of the information revolution. Armed with their imaginations and computers, Hermes winners bring their ideas to life through traditional and digital platforms. Each year, competition judges evaluate the creative industry’s best publications, branding collateral, websites, videos, and advertising, marketing, and communication programs.
