Development of sustainable solutions, based on renewable raw materials and unique competence.

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.
