Lessebo has beaten its 2020 CO2 record by 14%

Based on last year’s data, the firm has reported that its production of paper and pulp emits 19kg of CO2 per tonne of the finished product. This is a 14% decrease from last year.

The firm’s environmental efforts have been recognised through awards and certification such as Cradle to Cradle Certification at Gold Level for its white ranges of Scandia 2000 and Lessebo Design.

According to Lessebo, these are the first paper products in the world to be certified at Gold Level.

We believe that the industry has a key role to play in finding sustainable solutions to today’s climate challenges and Lessebo Paper is one of the leading companies in the transition to a sustainable society

Eric Sigurdsson, chief executive officer of Lessebo Paper, says: “The efforts to reduce the carbon footprint at Lessebo Paper have proven to be successful and we continuously strive to further improve our environmental profile.

“We believe that the industry has a key role to play in finding sustainable solutions to today’s climate challenges and Lessebo Paper is one of the leading companies in the transition to a sustainable society.”

Lessebo, which first began producing paper in 1693, is one of the oldest paper manufacturers in Sweden. These latest figures are part of Lessebo’s efforts to improve its management of emissions to the air and water, and are accredited by an external auditor.
