Our Purpose in Paper

Developing the right strategies

Our strategies focus on supplying our Packaging customers with the high-quality finished papers they need for their manufacturing processes. That’s why we developed ways of working that ensure our sustainably sourced fibres become the papers needed for high performance packaging solutions. 

Thinking differently

We take a flexible approach to our papermaking operations. While recycling over four million tonnes of paper every year, we work towards helping society tackle some of its biggest challenges, such as by finding ways in which our UK mill could help the country to recycle all of its coffee cups.

Innovating together

Working with our Packaging customers to understand their needs, and with our Recycling suppliers to ensure we receive the highest quality of paper for recycling, we innovate to maximise the performance and strength of our packaging papers.

Putting sustainability at the heart

Whether it’s ensuring that 100% of the fibre we use comes from recycled or chain of custody certified papers, reducing our carbon footprint or mitigating the water impact of our mills, sustainability is at the heart of our paper production.
