Korsnäs pioneers EPDs

Korsnäs has introduced complete Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for its entire range.

The international EPD system sets a standard for the methodology of measuring, compiling and presenting the particulars of a product’s environmental performance. An EPD is a document that comprises a full record of the environmental impact of a product based on a life-cycle analysis. The aim is to provide relevant, verified and comparable environmental information. All data must be verified by an independent body, in this case Det Norske Veritas.

The information contained in an EPD includes environmental impact data such as emissions into air and water, use of energy and potential environmental gains. The transparency thus achieved allows customers to assess the environmental impact of products from cradle to gate. The EPD also provides the data that enable customers to account for the environmental impact of their operations, e.g. carbon footprint.

Packaging converters and brand owners alike want to be able to assess the environmental performance of their suppliers and business partners,” says Sven Hjelmstedt, Business Manager Cartonboard, Korsnäs.

In fact, Korsnäs has a history of pioneering developments in the environmental field. The Swedish carton maker, was the first forest company in the world to obtain an ISO 14001 certification from seedling to finished product, and was also the first Swedish forest company to FSC certify its entire forest land. The company also aims to become fully independent of fossil fuels and to be self-sufficient in terms of energy.
