Jobs and ripple effects

We play an important role in the city and region as an employer, a customer of many suppliers, a socioeconomic contributor through taxes and duties from our operations and as an associate for many stakeholders and voluntary organisations.

Profitable and sustainable jobs are a prerequisite for welfare and social security. This manifests itself through income and meaningful activity for individuals, as well as through financial contributions through taxes and duties that companies and their employees pay in the countries and local communities in which they operate.

The communities where Borregaard has production units see significant ripple effects from suppliers and other activities around our plants.

Borregaard impacts and interacts with the local communities where we are located. Our plants outside Norway are relatively small, while Borregaard has been a cornerstone company in Sarpsborg for generations.
