Sappi’s 2020Vision

Our roadmap for the future
Aug 11, 2016 11:00 AM ET

This past year, Sappi Limited announced a new strategic vision to reshape our business through further diversification. Our transformation journey is not about radical change. It has been, and continues to be, an intentional evolution of the business—changing to meet market needs and opportunities.

Key elements of our group strategy include:

  • Achieving cost advantages
  • Growing through moderate investments
  • Rationalizing declining businesses
  • Generating cash to strengthen the balance sheet
  • Accelerating growth in adjacent businesses

By 2020, we aim for the composition of our group EBIDTA to be balanced such that 25 percent is derived from pack­aging and specialties, 25 percent from graphic papers, 40 percent from dissolving wood pulp and 10 percent from new business opportunities such as nanocellulose, biorefinery products and energy.

Through ongoing investments in our people and manu­facturing assets, we continue to strengthen our position as leaders in the industry segments we serve.
