Sustainable packaging for fashion & apparel

Our renewable board and papers for fashion and apparel packaging have excellent printability for attractive designs. The range includes extra strong grades for damage-free transport, e-com paper mailers and shelf-ready boxes. All materials are made from primary fibres, sustainably managed resources and are fully recyclable in regular paper recycling. Our paper production in Europe is already 98% fossil free and by 2030, all integrated mills should be entirely fossil free.
