A never-ending story
In the end, we all want the same thing – customers, employees, suppliers and the rest of the community- a good world to live in, and the possibility tp leave it at least as good, to our children. Today, the world is exposed to different increasing threats. Of course our approach to dealing with threats and overcoming difficulties must be businesslike, But equally important is the approach to nature. We, as a user of nature itself, have a responsibility regarding how and for what we use it. This responsibility, and our approach to it, is summarized as Sustainability. A true core factor in our business.
Fresh fibers make a difference
We are a part of the Holmen Group, a major forest owner in Sweden, which means fresh fibers is particularly important to us. Fresh fibers are the base of both our business and our sustainability. It gives us the possibility to develop paper with often unique properties, adding value to our clients in their business, as they are able to save. On paper, on transports, and on environment.
Without fresh, no recycled.
Our paper is made from fresh fibers that come from well-managed, continuously growing forests, a renewable raw material. We use smaller trees from the clearcutting process. Our saw mills also supply wood chips for the pulp – a residual product generated from the manufacture of climate smart construction materials.
The fresh fibers allow us to produce and offer paper products that are energy recoverable. Our papers also constitute the source of recycled paper. The fresh fiber can be recycled 5-7 times, and thus makes a difference as the environmentally friendly raw material in the process to produce recycled papers. To put it plainly, we supply Europe with recyclable papers.
Transparency is a key aspect of striving toward Sustainability. The Holmen group reports on sustainability since 2004. Currently at the GRI G4 Core level as an integrated part of the Holmen Group Annual Report.
