On the occasion of its 50th anniversary the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the Netherlands has awarded its annual Company Award to the Holmen Group for its climate efforts.
Holmen has become known and recognised for its impressive work to reduce its environmental impact. One example that the Swedish Chamber of Commerce drew attention to was the new recovery boiler now being built at Iggesund Mill. The boiler is the key in the mill’s long-term plan to reduce its fossil carbon dioxide emissions to zero. This plan includes the mill becoming self-sufficient in electricity and to become 100% biofuel powered.
