To systematically record and control our environmental impacts, we use an environmental management system. In 2021, we successfully integrated our production entities in Lithuania and Croatia into the ISO 14001 Standard. Hence, our company has all its major subsidiaries certified.
Our three key environmental focus areas are responsible procurement of wood and wood products, efficient use of our resources, and reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions.To preserve our raw material quality and improve our grading yield, several projects, initiatives, and investments were successfully implemented in 2020 and will be continuously improved.
Our wood waste is partly burnt at all production sites to generate heat. The remaining wood waste is either used for pellets production or processed into and sold as briquettes.
Emissions and climate change
We are working at all sites to increase our resource efficiency and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. In the latter case, we further invest in data availability and transparency. As for logistics, we are strengthening direct shipments and combined transports.
To systematically record and control our environmental impacts we use an environmental management system, and we are also engaging our partners (e. g. suppliers and logistics partners) to obtain data on indirect emissions, as we fully want to understand our environmental impact in all its dimensions. Furthermore, we strive to continuously and systematically lower our GHG emissions and environmental impact.
