Our priorities and the Sustainable Development Goals

Since our mill was built in the 1990s, we have fully lived up to our responsibilities in terms of sourcing and production (particularly its impact on the environment), and towards our employees and the local community.

We communicate around our environmental results every year and we have been publishing a CSR report every four years since 2012, detailing our actions in terms of sustainable development, our goals and how we achieve them.

Our priority Sustainable Development Goals

All the Sustainable Development Goals are important, and we are taking action, directly or indirectly, to respect and achieve each one of them.

Our 7 priority Sustainable Development Goals

In 2020, Norske Skog signed the Global Compact. At the same time, it also consulted all its Business Units to define its priority Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
