The paper industry is energy intensive. However, the carbon intensity is mitigated by the extensive use of bio-energy in the sector.

We focus our efforts on reducing specific types of energy usage and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by investing in more energy-efficient systems such as Combined Heat & Power (CHP) plants, alternative energy options such as biomass, and by driving production efficiencies.

A total of 80% of all fuels used to generate electricity and steam are produced through a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system, which is the most efficient way of transforming fuel like biomass, natural gas or coal into electricity and/or heat.

The biomass we use as fuels, are typically residues from forest management operations, waste from sawmills and/or other residues from wood handling activities. 

Carbon management

We aim to increase our usage of biomass - a fossil fuel alternative - and have an on-going commitment to invest in the reduction of our CO₂emissions.
