Bergvik Skog contributes to the development of a bioeconomy through the sustainable use of forest, land, and water.
Our Environmental Policy
Bergvik Skog’s land holdings of 2.3 million hectares in Sweden and 0.1 million hectares in Latvia has a central part in a sustainable bioeconomy. In a bioeconomy the forest provides renewable wood resources that can replace products based on non-renewable resources such as fossil oil. At the same time the growing forest sequesters carbon that otherwise would contribute to climate change. The large land holdings of Bergvik Skog additionally provide an opportunity to establish wind farms that can contribute to an increase in renewable energy. Bergvik Skog contribute to a bioeconomy based on a sustainable use of forest, land, and water by:
- Increasing and utilizing forest production capacity
- Working for biodiversity conservation
- Restricting the effects on water and wetlands
- Implement restorative management such as programs for endangered species and conservation burning
- Preventing pollution and minimizing unwanted environmental effects
- Working for the establishment of wind mills and an increasing use of bio fuels
- Meeting binding requirements and working for continuous improvement
