Climate change is the biggest challenge of our time. How we tackle this crisis will determine the future of our planet. Climate change requires real change. Companies and brands across industries have committed to ambitious targets that challenge business models and require a shift to sustainable solutions. Packaging solutions and materials play an important role.
We are a sustainable business partner
Our business has deep roots in both history and the forest. In 1685 the Queen of Sweden entrusted the Iggesund mill to use local waters and forests. Even if our business has changed with time, we still base it on the same two main pillars – wood and water. Wood coming from nearby forests, providing raw material for our paperboard and energy to power our production. And water from nearby lakes and rivers, giving us freshwater to use and renewable energy from hydroelectric powerplants.
Today and as part of the Holmen Group, our business model is circular. The forest ecocycle gives us our wood, which is refined and made into products, products our customers can then refine in their turn. As the lifecycle draws to a close, the products can be recycled and come back to life in a new form or be useful as biofuel.
Together we can make a difference
But sustainability is not only about our business, our mills and our paperboard products. We want to be part of the bigger picture by offering purposeful solutions that have a positive impact — for the end consumer, the business and for the planet. By working together, we can use the power of our collective knowledge and create purposeful solutions that are truly sustainable.
