Making sustainable choices shouldn’t mean making compromises. That’s why our packaging materials and solutions are not only more sustainable, but lighter, stronger and more durable too. Because we believe all aspects of packaging can always be improved and that the right packaging solutions can become essential tools to help you achieve a more sustainable future. With that in mind - let us help you go more sustainable.

Three easy ways

Sustainability or performance? With our focus on protection, lightweighting and optimization to reduce waste and CO2 emissions, we can help you achieve both. Here are three easy ways Billerud can help you reach your sustainability goals.

Switch to paper

For any brand using plastic packaging, this is essential. Paper from virgin fibers 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. We are ready to help your brand today

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.

Get a sustainable supply chain

Billerud is, according to the Dow Jones Index, one of the world’s most sustainable packaging companies. We are 98% 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.


Every day we work on hundreds of projects that lead to lighter, stronger and more sustainable packaging. Regularly, you will find a new story showcased here.
