Safety, Health and Environment

The world we live in is changing – fast. Accelerating globalization, climate change, biodiversity loss, deforestation and degradation of land and fresh water, population growth and other global trends are increasingly affecting livelihoods and the way we do business. We believe being part of the solution will help secure the future prospects of our business and our communities. As we explore opportunities to grow, we work closely with our stakeholders to address global sustainability challenges across the value chain. While being performance driven, we also act and think in a responsible and sustainable way. This includes taking care of the natural resources that are essential to our work and maintaining these resources in the long run, thinking of and caring for our colleagues and treating them with respect, but also taking the impact we have on neighboring communities into account in everything we say and do.

Climate change

Climate change represents one of the greatest threats to our environment, society and economy. Our climate change programme is mainly focused on: 

  • more efficient use of energy
  • increasing our use of renewable energy

Forestry

Forests are essential for our business and for the communities in which we operate, and wood is one of our primary raw materials.
We are committed to:

  • responsible, sustainable management of forests and associated ecosystems
  • the responsible sourcing of wood, fibre and biomass

Water

Water is a critical resource and a key ecosystem service for our business throughout our value chain. We continue to manage our water footprint through:

  • conducting water impact assessments at all our mills and forest operations
  • recycling and reusing water where possible, and treatment of our discharged water

Employees

Our people, and the care they take in their work, make it possible for us to achieve our sustainable development goals.

So it’s vital that we communicate effectively with them every day and make sure we protect their health and safety at all times.

Communities

The future prospects of our business lie in the health and stability of the communities we live and work in.

We aim to make a real and lasting contribution to our communities both through
direct and indirect economic contributions and through community engagement plans

Partnership

In February 2014, we entered a 3-year partnership with WWF International, focusing on increasing environmental stewardship in the packaging and paper sectors.
