REDUCE FOOD WASTE

Some 50% of all fruit and vegetables harvested each year are damaged and wasted before they arrive at the table. Changing to a strong packaging made of primary fibres helps to reduce this unnecessary food waste. The strength of primary fibres also makes it possible to save packaging weight and thereby decrease CO2 emissions and costs related to transportation.

Did you know that …

… you can only recycle fibres a limited number of times? By using primary fibres, you feed the recycling loop and secure availability for recycled fibres for less demanding packaging.

Maximise CO2 absorption

When you choose primary fibres from responsible forestry for your packaging, you help to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere. Why? Because growing trees absorb CO2 to be able to grow. BillerudKorsnäs stimulates responsible forestry – that bind huge volumes of CO2 – and the replacement of fossil-based packaging material. The total positive climate effect of BillerudKorsnäs is estimated at 5.4 million tons of CO2-equivalents per year.

… young trees absorb three times more CO2 from the air than old trees? For every tree we harvest, we plant three new trees and thereby secure the future growth of Swedish forests*. * Source: SLU (Swedish University of Agriculture)
