Pulp & sustainability

Sustainability is at the heart of our operations, from seed to finished product. Everything we produce originates from the exceptional, renewable resource that is the forest. As a cooperative of 52,000 forest owners in southern Sweden, we know exactly where our wood comes from, because our members own it. 


All the wood we use is traceable and all the pulps in our broad product portfolio are available as PEFC™ or FSC® certified.

Origin of wood

Our Origin of wood raw material service makes it easy to track the chain of custody for your pulp.

From forest to end product

From the forest to the end product, we are careful to control every step of our processes to ensure minimal environmental impact. We minimise water consumption, our mills’ efficient energy systems deliver electricity, district heating and biofuel to their local municipalities, and in 2020, we started up the world’s first commercial biomethanol plant.
