THE COMPANY - OUR PHILOSOPHY

A BAG BEGINS WITH A SEED

Thinking green” begins thousands of kilometers away, IN THE VAST NORDIC FORESTS where wood reigns supreme and where every day the amazing miracle of nature takes place: thousands of trees that, with our help, sprout and grow, contributing to the expansion of forest land and the improvement of the global climate. These trees and their wood give life to the paper of the future, while the forests are restored to their ancient splendor: his is not a fantasy, but the reality we aim to promote.

01

The paper used in our production processes begins its life in special greenhouse nurseries. They are part of a virtuous system that ensures the correct use of forest resources in areas like Scandinavia and Canada, where wood is an invaluable asset to be safeguarded.

Spruce and birch trees that will be later used to replace felled trees and reforest are grown in this protected environment.

piante

03

In managed forests, for each tree cutted at the end of its life cycle, at least three saplings are planted and carefully monitored. In this way, large paper mills protect the forests while organizations like the FSC (Forest Steward Council), a leading authority for the promotion of ecologically sustainable forest systems, certify the correct conduct of paper mills.
