The environment

The world faces a number of important challenges related to climate and the environment, food production and resource management. Borregaard and the industry in general represent part of the solutions to these challenges. 

Environment and climate are integral parts of Borregaard’s business model and our sustainability strategy. We are actively working on measures that can contribute to sound environmental and resource management.

Environmental issues are material to Borregaard and our stakeholders, not only because of the environmental benefits of our products themselves, but also in view of the importance of managing the risk of emissions to the environment.

Borregaard uses renewable and natural raw materials and converts them into valuable products that can replace oil-based alternatives. Our products are used in a variety of applications in sectors such as construction and building materials, feed and agriculture, food and pharma, personal care, batteries, biofuel, textiles and various other industries.

Borregaard is the world's most advanced biorefinery. High raw material utilisation, lower greenhouse gas emissions and products to replace oil-based alternatives provide the sustainable and future-oriented solutions which the world needs.
