Renewable packaging solutions
Based on solid expertise and innovation, BillerudKorsnäs offers packaging materials and solutions that are resource-efficient, reduce waste, improve logistics efficiency and strengthen brands. By challenging conventional packaging we create tangible benefits for our customers and society.
BillerudKorsnäs is striving to reinforce this trend and to create a market that demands smarter, more sustainable packaging solutions. We work continuously to develop our products so as to accommodate and encourage this demand.
Stable production and high product quality forms the basis for greater customer benefit. In the past few years we have carried out intensive preventive work on safety, high production accessibility and the production of sustainable packaging solutions of the highest quality.
When these three aspects interact, they also provide the best conditions for improving the customer’s business with a focus on the needs and wishes of end consumers.
Products that create value
Our materials and packaging solutions are used for food and drink, for luxury goods, for pharmaceuticals and hygiene products, and in industry. Packaging and materials that consumers come into contact with account for 75 per cent of the company’s net turnover. Our strong, clean material helps protect your foods and to maintain taste and nutrition – even during long, demanding periods of transport. Today, large food chains sell everything from sliced cheese and salami to smoked salmon in shaped paper trays made of the BillerudKorsnäs material FibreForm
Our material also adds value and reinforces brands in the area of consumer- and luxury packaging, where qualities with superior print properties are highly appreciated. In the industrial segment, our smart solutions help to optimise and streamline customer processes.
We at BillerudKorsnäs verify and improve the quality and safety of our products by regularly checking both processes and finished products, and by using accredited laboratories to perform analyses and document verifications. Our units have management systems in the fields of quality, the environment and energy as support in setting up systematic work methods that guarantee safety and durability. By comparing our material with conventional options, we also increase both our own and our customers’ knowledge about renewable packaging material and the benefits that come with choosing material of this kind.
Life cycle assessments
In order to produce a solid basis for our ongoing climate work, and to make it easy for our customers to assess the performance of our products from an environmental perspective, we commission external partners to perform life cycle assessments (LCA) of our packaging solutions. The studies compare paper packaging made of our material with corresponding solutions made of other materials. The studies consider the entire product life cycle: from material production to the disposal or recycling of the finished packaging.
