Documented low footprints

Our products have documented low climate footprints and provide better environmental performance than the alternatives in almost all environmental categories. 

Borregaard has engaged an independent third party, Norsus, to conduct a life cycle assessment (LCA) based on the ISO 14044/48 standard. The LCA analyses the environmental impacts of Borregaard’s products, from raw materials to finished products, and monitors how environmental improvement in the value chain can reduce this impact.

We prioritise innovations and activities that can improve our products’ environmental and climate impact, such as reduced emissions and waste and improved water and energy efficiency. The LCA confirms that the negative environmental and climate impacts of Borregaard’s products and processes have diminished over time.

Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) are made from the LCA data and verified by a third party. Compared with competing oil-based alternatives, our products provide better environmental performance than the alternatives in almost all environmental categories. This demonstrates environmental benefits from replacing the alternatives with our products.
