Sustainability

Exilva is one of Borregaard’s radical, new innovations, perfectly created to meet our criteria for a sustainable approach. Exilva is made from 100% natural raw materials, sustainably sourced from Scandinavian forests, offering superior performance from a more sustainable solution.

At Borregaard, we believe in true sustainability. By combining sustainable raw materials, green energy, unique knowledge and understanding, as well as a high rate of product innovation, we achieve environmentally friendly alternatives that compete with other cutting edge products, but with a greener carbon footprint.

Our biorefinery relies on raw materials that meet environmental and sustainability criteria. Borregaard purchases more than 1 million solid cubic metres of wood per year, from forests that are managed in a sustainable and eco-friendly manner, and run in accordance with laws on felling in the country of origin. In 2014, 86% of wood came from Norwegian forests, while the remaining 14% came from Swedish forests.
