Multicopy paper is made in the village Nymolla in southern Sweden. It’s a fully integrated mill where we make pulp and paper at the same site. Since we source most of the raw materials close by, we can minimise the impact of distribution on the environment. Also, the surplus heat from the mill supplies the district heating network in the area. These actions are part of the process of making a paper with exceptional sustainability credentials.
We care a great deal for the wellbeing of the ”natural habitat” of Multicopy and practice sustainable forest management by replanting 2–3 trees for each one cut down. Most of this material is from wood cut down as part of forest thinning work and wood chips from local sawmills. The main part of the fibre is sourced within a 100 km radius of the mill, allowing us to minimise the environmental impact of transportation.
Since establishing the origin of the wood is important to us, traceability is vital. We employ a traceability system to ensure that the raw materials meet our standards. Nymölla Mill holds Chain-of-Custody certification in line with the FSC®, and Multicopy is available as FSC labelled.
