At Norske Skog, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact through sustainable operations and continuous improvement. To achieve this, we make sure that our environmental management programs and standards are an integral part of all our activities.
We take responsibility for following the principles of sustainable development. As well, we strive to continuously improve our environmental performance. Our mills set annual targets for key environmental performance indicators, and report their performance every month.
We ensure that our fibre raw material originates from forests that are managed in a way that retains productivity and biodiversity. We continuously work to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions through efficient use of energy and using alternative energy sources.
All our mills operate in accordance with relevant legislation and statutory requirements, of course. But we try to do more. In most cases, we set stricter standards for our activities than national or local governments.
We use externally verified standards (e.g. ISO 14001) to ensure that our management and wood purchasing systems help us to achieve our goals and targets.
As you explore the environmental section of our website, you'll find many cases of Norske Skog's commitment to a sustainable future.
