Environmental Work

As early as 1990, a group of enthusiasts working at Långholmen got engaged in environmental issues. It was back then when the first environmental group was created. Over the years, the work expanded to include also other environmental issues such as chemicals, energy and transport. This contributed strongly to the decision we made in February 2009. It was on this date that we decided to label the complex with the Nordic Ecolabel.

At the beginning, almost all environmental work was about waste and sorting it out in different fractions, something which was not easy considering that there were no sufficiently developed systems for receiving sorted waste.

Working actively with the environment, however, does not mean that we have been successful in stopping all CO2 discharges. We have therefore decided to make up for some of our discharges and to support the Zero mission project in Gorongosa National Park in Sofala, Mozambique. This is a tree planting project that strengthens development opportunities for local farmers. We contribute by planting two trees a day.
