Our commitment to sustainability

To produce our products, we recycle 1.6 million tons of paper and board on a yearly basis and use it as a raw material for our 100% recyclable and biodegradable protective cardboard packaging solutions. 

All our employees get involved in taking care of the environment, whether that’s recycling waste cardboard in our factories or sourcing power from our CorrBoard Bioenergy plant, to run operations whilst feeding excess energy to the public power grid.
