We live and work in a beautiful part of Sweden. The mighty forests, the glittering lakes and the rich wildlife of the province are constant reminders of our environmental responsibility. We apply a sustainability focus in all aspects of our operations, from the selection of renewable raw materials and environmentally compatible production processes, through to responsible energy utilisation and transportation systems.
The natural step
Reactive compliance with regulations is not enough. We endeavour proactively to become Europe’s most environmentally friendly paper mill. To raise awareness of ecological issues we have implemented The Natural Step training for all employees.
Natural Step is an international organisation that provides solutions, models, tools and knowledge transfer to accelerate global sustainability. The people behind G-Print were the first in the industry to take The Natural Step.
