Sustainability & Health Safety and Environment
The 21st century brings new challenges to the pulp and paper industry as producers and consumers become more aware of the environmental and social impacts of industrial activity and committed to a sustainable future.

We want to contribute to production which generates waste and emissions with no or insignificant impact on nature. We want an industry which maximizes the use of recycled materials.
