Areas where we can make the biggest difference 

Safety remains the number one priority for Billerud. It constitutes, together with the climate impact and materials for the future, the three areas that are strategically vital for our future competitiveness. With the support of a sustainability foundation, that incorporates those aspects that are fundamental to our sustainability work, our ambition is to continue a sustainable transition by maximizing the positive and minimizing negative impacts along our value chain. 

Safety first

Health and safety are prioritized at Billerud. A healthy and safe workplace is a fundamental right, and we work continuously to provide this by identifying and eliminating risks. Safe and healthy environments lower not only incidents and accidents, but also contribute to a more efficient production, and are therefore essential for stable, sustainable, and profitable operations.

Climate impact

Billerud has both a direct and indirect impact on the climate throughout the value chain. We work to reduce direct emissions from our own operations as well as indirect emissions from e.g. purchased goods and services. We also enable customers to lower their carbon footprint through our recyclable products made of renewable material.

Materials for the future

Our product development work supports the circular economy and high product safety. With each new material that we develop we raise the sustainability benefits for a positive impact on the value chain. We aim for high-performance materials that enable customers to use less material in their packaging and reduce their own carbon footprint.
