We are committed to play our part in transforming our industry into one that is genuinely built around circularity. A key part of our transition is to reduce our environmental footprint and greenhouse gas emissions by optimizing production processes and efficiently using resources.
energy & emissions
We are among the first companies in the pulp and paper industry who have committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net zero to contribute to the reduction of global warming.
Our direction is clear. The milestones are set within the delfort climate care program – our roadmap to net zero that comprises our long-term strategy considering interim targets and activities. It takes into account many aspects that contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions and energy consumption, such as regulation and laws, market expectations and customer needs, best available technology and operations, purchasing of energy, raw materials and
equipment, as well as reporting and disclosure.
three main priorities of action

CO2-free purchased electricity
Water quality and increasing scarcity in many parts of the world pose a threat to humanity and the environment. Climate change worsens the impact of severe weather events such as floods, droughts, rising sea levels and changing rainfall patterns that cause, e. g. nutrient leaching, erosion and reduced availability of water. Specialty paper production is water-intensive. It is our responsibility to conserve, reuse and recycle water wherever possible.
- Our cooling water is kept in separate water circuits to reduce freshwater withdrawal.
- We use big data software to measure and optimize water withdrawal, consumption and discharge in real-time.
- We implemented water-saving measures, such as drilling of own wells and setting lower cooling temperatures.
- All production water is treated in our own or in municipal wastewater treatment plants.
