The company says this action is a major step toward accomplishing their Science Based Targets and is in line with the company's sustainability ambitions. Sappi says it will get its electricity from Sun Central PV, a SolarAfrica Energy facility located in the Northern Cape, southeast of De Aar. The company says, as a result of the agreement in April, power will be available starting in December 2025. Over five years, Sappi will receive a utility-scale renewable power solution through the first-of-its-kind Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
