Global challenges and sustainable solutions

Borregaard’s sustainable solutions can play an important role in addressing some of the world’s greatest challenges: Population growth and climate change.

The UN predicts population growth of more than 10% by 2030, which will generate resource scarcity and an extraordinary demand for climate friendly solutions in our daily lives. The Paris Agreement and the UN Climate Panel have defined specific sustainability goals and measures within areas such as access to raw materials, energy, food and infrastructure.

We take climate action and demonstrate how our business can help advance sustainable development by both minimising negative and maximising positive environmental impacts.

Borregaard creates renewable products and solutions to replace oil-based alternatives. Utilising the different components of wood, we produce biopolymers, speciality cellulose, biovanillin, cellulose fibrils and bioethanol for a variety of applications in sectors such as agriculture and aquaculture, construction, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, foodstuffs, batteries and biofuels.
