  1. At Group level, wood consumption is computed net, taking into account internal deliveries of chips from the sawmills to the nearby mills.

  2. Of which 4 615 GWh from production at mills from recovered liqours, bark and wood residues, 1 132 GWh from the TMP process at Braviken Paper Mill and Hallsta Paper Mill which generates thermal energy that is recovered and used in production, and 352 GWh from natural gas, oil and purchased thermal energy.

  3. Of which 2 377 GWh from renewables and 1 610 GWh from nuclear. Emissions of fossil carbon dioxide from production of purchased electricity totalled 113 tonnes.
  4. Almost 100 per cent of surface water from lakes and watercourses.
  5. 100 per cent active substance. Total quantity of commodities was 229 000 tonnes for chemicals and 207 000 tonnes for filler and pigment.

  6. Relates to emissions at facilities.

  7. Emissions of NMVOC (non-methane volatile organic compounds), CH4 and N2O were measured/estimated to be 2 591 (2 552) tonnes, 26 (26) tonnes and 37 (33) tonnes respectively in 2017

  8. By-products used, for example, as filling material, construction material or for the production of soil products.

  9. For delivery to the chemical industry.

  10. Hazardous waste is dealt with by an authorised collection and recovery contractor. Certain fractions of the waste are recovered. Oil-containing waste from docking ships is dealt with at port facilities at three Holmen mills. Such waste is included in the figures for hazardous waste. The volume of this waste in 2017 totalled 627 tonnes.

  11. Branches, treetops and peat delivered from Holmen’s land to external energy producers.

  12. For 2017: 138 GWh of electrical energy supplied from the mill at Workington to the local community. 212 GWh of thermal energy from Iggesund Mill and Braviken Paper Mill to Iggesund Sawmill and Braviken Sawmill, 16 GWh thermal energy from Hallsta Paper Mill and Iggesund Mill to the district heating network of the local communities.
