EASY WAYS TO HELP YOUR BRAND GO SUSTAINABLE - ACT NOW!

The clock is ticking, your consumers and wider society want you to help the climate now. The packaging materials and expertise of Billerud can help you lower the carbon footprint of your brand immediately and move towards a circular economy. These easy ways can help you transform your brand today:

ACT NOW

Reduce packaging

Consider switching to our exceptionally strong packaging board and papers. This enables lighter and thinner packaging, even for heavy-duty applications, which reduces cost without sacrificing performance. And above all, it results in a lower carbon footprint. Transportation and logistics get more efficient as you decrease weight and the amount of air transported.

Switch to paper

For any brand using plastic packaging, this is essential. Paper from primary fibres is strong, clean, renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. You should always avoid hard-to-recycle packaging like plastics, polybags, cable ties and EPS (foam blocks). The issues of littering, pollution and natural resources will shape future regulations and legislation. So let us help your brand today.

Get a sustainable supply chain

Billerud is, according to the Dow Jones Index, one of the world’s most sustainable packaging companies. We are 97% fossil free in our European production thanks to biofuels and certified according to FSC® and PEFC™ standards. Our wood raw materials come from sustainably managed forests, and we help forest owners become certified through our group certificates. Work with us, so together we can displace more CO2 per year.

OUR COMMITMENT

WALK THE TALK 

With the environmental attitudes of society changing swiftly, brands need to strive towards net-zero emissions to limit global warming. It’s time to walk the talk.

 

At Billerud, we challenge conventional packaging for a sustainable future. And we do this by having one of the most sustainable supply chains in the industry. For five years in a row, we have been top ranked in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the packaging industry. We stand ready to help you move, step-by-step, towards a circular and climate neutral economy.
