The EU’s Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) from 2013 requires that pulp, paper and paperboard mills comply with tougher emissions requirements by October 2018. The environmental status of Holmen’s Swedish mills is good and the mills meet the new criteria.
Workington has applied for an exemption to the environmental authority regarding the conditions for the emissions from the mill. Workington has proposed conditions during the period of the exemption. At the turn of the year the review of the application was still ongoing.
Holmen applies certified systems for environmental, energy and quality management as well as for forest stewardship. All its systems are integrated into the business and reviewed annually by internal and external specialists.
ISO 14001, ISO 9001, ISO 50001 and ISO 45001 are international standards for environmental management, quality management, energy management and occupational health and safety issues.
Holmen’s forestry is certified to both PEFCTM and FSC® (FSC-ID). Holmen Skog also applies the environmental management system ISO 14001. The forestry certifications are a way to confirm that Holmen’s forests are managed according to recognised standards that take account of environmental, production and social assets.
FSC® – Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC-ID) is a system for the certification of forestry that is supported by several environmental organisations.
PEFCTM – Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes is an international system for forest certification.
Chain-of-custody certification enables wood used at the certificated units to be traced back to its origin. Holmen Skog's chain-of-custody certification provides assurance that non-certified wood has not been harvested illegally or in contravention of the rights of indigenous peoples, does not come from controversial sources, has not been genetically modified and does not come from natural forests that have been converted into plantations.
FSC® – Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC-ID) – is an international member organisation that works to promote responsible use of the world’s forests, giving due respect to the ecological, social and economic needs of both current and future generations. Along with many major environmental organisations, Holmen is an active member of FSC® and applies its certification scheme.

The EU Ecolabel is the official ecolabel of the European Union. The ecolabelling criteria are drawn up by responsible bodies in the Member States. To achieve certification, the products are assessed from a life cycle perspective from raw material to waste. The products have to meet strict environmental, functional and quality requirements. These requirements are tightened on a continuous basis.
ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised standard for environmental management that helps to identify, prioritise and manage the operation’s environmental impact. Certifying our plants to the standard enables us to be proactive in our environmental work and focus on continuous improvement.
