We have reduced the carbon dioxide emissions from our paper mills with 95% since 2005. That is a huge difference, but what does it actually mean? Here's an overview of how we can make a difference for your business.
Sustainable processes make the whole difference
At Holmen Paper, we strive to contribute to your sustainable business, and we put equally demanding expectations on our suppliers, for the benefit of our customers. Having sustainable processes is crucial for maintaining a low environmental impact from our mills and products.
We all need to keep improving in terms of sustainability. Let's look at a few examples of how our processes can make a difference in achieving your organization's targets:
By using our paper, you will most likely lower the carbon footprint of your purchased material. Our use of fossil-free electricity and the efficiency and smart energy recycling in our mills lead to extremely low CO2 emissions from our production compared to the industry average.
You may have a recycling target, and recycling is good, but the paper cycle needs regular refills of fresh fibre to keep up the quality. But fear not, in our circular business, paper is a by-product from sustainable forest management and from making wood products. With our papers, you feed new fresh fibres into the cycle, knowing about their origin, knowing all about their emissions, and knowing they are recyclable.
We recommend you to set your targets on using renewable materials, and then choose the suppliers which can manage their production with the lowest environmental impact. This way you will support the actors that dare to take more responsibility in the cycle, and the recycling system will not only be maintained but improved.
