The balance between nature and technology

When selecting raw material suppliers, we are very careful in taking the environment into account.

Responsibility and environmental awareness

European paper mills, leaders in the global paper industry and forestry, are our main suppliers and they are especially careful in acting in a responsible and sustainable way. None of them uses hips or wood from protected forests.

Production process

We undertake all actions that lead to minimize the environmental impact, both in relation to the production process and to the final products that enter the market. Waste material, 100% recyclable, will be reused by paper mills for the production of recycled paper. Printing is made with water based inks to prevent the emission of pollutants or harmful substances into the atmosphere. We are one of the founding members of COMIECO (National Cooperative for the Re-utilization and Recycling of cellulose packaging) and are also registered to CONAI (National Cooperative of Packaging).

The suppliers

During the selection of raw material suppliers, we are very careful in taking the environment into due account. Our main paper suppliers are European: they are global leaders in paper and forestry and are especially careful to carry out their work in a responsible way. These companies neither cut nor accepts wood from protected forests. On their own initiative, several hectars of their forests originally destined to commercial exploitation are now in a state of protection and conservation. Their commitment is confirmed by the numerous certifications obtained such as PEFC Certification (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) and FSC® Certification (Forest Stewardship Council) which certify the respect of the Chain of Custody Certification (CoC) on all paper produced in their various plants.

Working with paper means recognizing the priority value of protecting the environment. This commitment has always characterized our activities and investments from the production process to the culture that drives the entire company.

Working with paper means recognizing the priority value of protecting the environment. This commitment has always characterized our activities and investments from the production process to the culture that drives the entire company.

We believe that the culture of respect for the environment must be widespread and passed on. For this reason, we have promoted a project with schools from Trecastelli, entitled "From the Bag to the Tree". Approximately 10,000 square meters of land were planted with trees, creating the "Park of Colours".

(Re)building a sustainable future

Every year, around 340 million tons of plastic are produced in the world. And if f this number doesn’t help you get an idea, then better to say it with an image: every year, the quantity of plastic produced in the world would fill all the skyscrapers in New York.

This is not a mere datum. It’s a fact that affects the destiny of our Planet. The choice and the chance to turn the tide is up to us: we have to do everything we can to (re)build a green and sustainable future. Even if definitely behindhand, in recent years, people have become more sensitive on the issue of plastics: the urgency to reduce its production and consumption is becoming more and more necessary and proactive. Our desire to tell the universe of value of paper packaging goes in this exact direction. To us, this has always been a daily mission. Because paper has a noble and virtuous soul, with excellent recycling and recovery rates. Because paper is natural, with limited Co2 emissions, perfect to contain and wrap any product, starting from the food industry, which requires food-grade materials.

Certified respect.

Our commitment is confirmed by the many certifications obtained by BillerudKorsnäs, such as the PEFC (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) and FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council ®) certifications, that ensure that paper produced by BillerudKorsnäs in their facilities is compliant with the Certified Chain of Custody (CoC).
