Climate positive

Along the production cycle, it is unavoidable that CO2 is emitted, even though Lessebo Paper focuses on highly efficient usage of resources. Thus, carbon offsetting is a way of taking responsibility for these unavoidable emissions by investing in CO2 mitigation activities outside the company. We neutralise emissions related to the paper production by investing in local forests to increase the capacity or carbon sinks through reforestation. As a matter of fact, the forests absorb more CO2 than we emit. Therefore, Lessebo Paper is a climate positive mill, producing climate positive paper.

We continuously improve our resource management and reduce greenhouse gas emissions on behalf of future generations.

Lessebo Paper has increased the loading efficiency of outgoing transport, which has resulted in reduced CO2 emissions.

The pallets we use come from a company 10 minutes’ drive from Lessebo, resulting in reduced emissions from transport and supporting local suppliers of climate friendly goods.

At least two trees are planted for every tree felled. In less than 100 years, Sweden´s forest assets have doubled.
