Wood - a natural and renewable raw material
Iggesund's operation is based on the renewable and carbon-neutral raw material wood, which provides products that can be recycled as both material and energy.
Emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases must level off at their current level and be reduced in the longer term in order to curb the change taking place in the Earth’s climate.
For climate-related reasons it is best to use the forests actively.
Wood is becoming an ever more important product in the sustainable society, as wood captures carbon. Growing forest stores the carbon dioxide from the air in trees and soil in the form of carbon. When the trees are felled and used for wood products, these products continue to capture carbon throughout the product's life
