Vida uses trees as raw material, a renewable material that continues to bind the carbon in long-lived products. All other by-products obtained from the log are also used. A very sustainable and climate-smart alternative.
In simple terms, growing forests absorb carbon dioxide. In Sweden where we operate, at least two trees are planted for every tree that is felled. Our long-lived products bind the carbon throughout their lifetime. Other products such as pallets, cable drums, stable litter and cellulose chips bind carbon for a shorter period. From the material that becomes fuel, bound carbon returns to the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. Energy obtained is used at the own production units, for drying wood and heating up our plants, but also for heating many homes.
Vida is making an even bigger difference by switching to rail transportation. Transporting by rail instead of by road reduces carbon dioxide emissions with every cubic metre of goods transported.
