Contributing to the green transition


We are part of the green transition and the circular economy in every way; even our name, Eternali (“eternally”), is indicative of our long-term, circular mindset. We humbly approach this task and will continue to progress our sustainability work at all times.

Commercial forestry - one of the best ways to preserve the natural forest

We see the commercial forestry as one of the best ways to preserve the natural forest. That may sound like a contradiction, but the fact is that an efficient and modern forestry that takes place according to both nature's own and the country's laws, is the best way to achieve two important environmental goals;

  • Conserving natural forest

  • Absorbing carbon dioxide.

But the plantations that we source from for supply of wood logs not only contribute to the conservation of the natural forest and absorbing carbon dioxide. Since eucalyptus plantations also deliver more volume of raw material per hectare than other forest plantations they thereby also contribute to a speedier green transition from plastic and fossil to wood fibre.

One of the most compelling aspects of eucalyptus is the sustainable nature of this raw material, if planted and managed with the care for environmental aspects. Without deforestation and managed responsibly to avoid ecological imbalances, the eucalyptus plantations provide a fast growing renewable and natural resource that can be sustainably harvested. This is why we call it the green wood. These plantations also aid in carbon sequestration and are also sometimes used in reforestation projects. Also when it comes to our wood chips supply we see this as a great contribution to the green transition by substituting fossil fuel in multiple industries.

And of course none of the plantations that we work with or source from interfere with natural forests.
