Rooted in the Swedish forests

Lessebo Paper is located in a densely forested area right between large shallow lakes in the inland region of Småland, Sweden. We have produced paper generation over generation, developing one of the most climate friendly paper in the world and it’s fully biodegradable and recyclable. All production site energy is sole from biomass fuel. Our renewable excess energy supply district heating to local homes.

Respect the surroundings today is to care about the generations of tomorrow. A 300 year old philosophy, more relevant than ever.
