Sustainability & Health Safety and Environment

We go further than most. 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 are committed to a sustainable future.

We want to see the world’s pulp and paper products made from fibers that are responsibly and sustainably sourced, using energy from renewable sources, discharging only clean water after production. 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.
  • As a business within AkzoNobel, we are in compliance with AkzoNobel's policies and guidelines in all sustainability, health and safety matters.
  • Detailed reports on sustainability targets, safety and health records, environmental targets, information on use of energy, raw materials, emissions to air, effluent to water & solid waste and much more can be found on the corporate website and annual report collection.
