The company has now taken a further step towards achieving its visionary sustainability goals by signing up to the Thuringia Sustainability Agreement, an alliance between the Government of the State of Thuringia and companies in the region. Comprehensive CO₂ Reduction Measures Already Initiated.
As a trailblazer in the field of climate protection, Koehler Paper has set for itself the goal of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2030 in comparison to 2020. This corresponds to about 360,000 metric tons of CO₂ per year. In order to achieve these ambitious goals, a comprehensive set of measures has already been initiated. For example, Koehler Paper is fully converting the combined heat and power plant at its site in Greiz to run on fine wood fraction rather than lignite. The converted power station is due to be put into operation in the coming weeks. Switching fuels will enable savings of more than 24,000 metric tons of carbon emissions per year at the Greiz site. The Koehler Group has invested around EUR 7.6 million in sustainable upgrades to this site in the federal state of Thuringia. It is just one example of the range of decarbonization measures being implemented by the Koehler Group.

There is increasing demand for sustainable packaging solutions from the market and consumers, which has meant that Koehler Paper’s product range has been continuously expanded in recent years. “We see ourselves as a technology driver. We’re always on the lookout for alternative raw materials and effective resources that can be used for paper production,” says Udo Hollbach, managing director of the Koehler Paper Greiz site. “Using silphie fibers in combination with wastepaper is another great solution for push-ing a circular economy when it comes to packaging, for example,” Hollbach adds.
