We challenge conventional packaging for a sustainable future. That is why we are proactively taking the lead in the transition to a circular society with packaging solutions that are renewable, recyclable and climate efficient.
The need for packaging is rapidly increasing every year. Most of today’s packaging is made from non-renewable materials, such as plastic, and contribute to more CO2 emissions than global aviation. And only ten percent of this packaging is effectively recycled, the rest is incinerated, ends up as landfill, or even litter.
We want to change this by making packaging material out of renewable fibers from responsible sources. Packaging that not only protects food and products so that less go to waste, but also can be recycled and used again.
Billerud is uniquely positioned to drive the transition to a climate-neutral and circular economy based on renewable and recyclable raw material from the forest. But to make this a reality, we need to actively push for change where we can contribute the most. During the coming years, we are therefore focusing our sustainability efforts within the following three areas:
All this is made possible by the fact that what we do is based on a sustainable foundation. With our sustainable wood supply, engaging workplaces, resource-efficient production and close relationship with suppliers and customers, we can proudly establish a sustainable and responsible value chain. And with both a local and a global presence, we provide surplus heat to tens of thousands of nearby homes at the same time as we cooperate with non-profit organisations for plastic-free oceans around the world.
We challenge conventional packaging for a sustainable future and we have the know-how, foundation and partnerships to do it. We strive for a future in which we are not dependent on fossil resources, and where sustainable options are no longer the exception, but the natural choice.
