Part of an eternal cycle
What we manufacture is good from a sustainability point of view, paper can be recycled and burnt as biofuel, replacing fossil fuels. If it is discarded carelessly, it is biodegradable – ensuring the environment comes to no harm. Thinking sustainability is in our DNA. Not so strange when we are surrounded by beautiful countryside. We borrow timber, water and energy from Mother Nature and, of course, we want to repay her. For every tree we finally cut after sixty to hundred years of growth, two to four new ones are planted. And the water we use is purified and returned to the cycle. BillerudKorsnäs is part of nature’s cycle.

- The right packaging for the right purpose is resourceefficient and results in a lower environmental impact thanks to less loss of packaged goods, lower fuel consumption and higher production capacity.
- Paper-based packaging is gaining ground as a more eco-friendly alternative compared to packaging based on fossil raw materials. BillerudKorsnäs is thus contributing towards a less fossil-dependent society with a reduced climate impact.
