Carbon Intensity Sofidel Group * (kgCO2/tpaper)

The principle Less is More, which underlies all the activities of the Sofidel Group, finds its natural expression in the environmental field. Paper production is, in fact, a highly energy intensive process that has an impact on some of the fundamental resources of the planet: the forests, the atmosphere and water. That is why the Group is committed to reducing its environmental impact by using innovative strategies and technology to limit CO2 emissions, respecting forest resources by applying strict purchasing policies and using water resources in the most rational way possible.
