In recent years, EXHAUSTO A/S has been a leading company in ventilation systems. As a natural part of the development, they have intensified their efforts to play a central role in the sustainable transition and reduce their CO2 footprint.

" The collaboration with Papirværk is a natural extension of our sustainability initiatives. Their expertise and commitment to circular economy harmonizes with our own goals and values.

Discarded paper has great value
EXHAUSTO A/S has entered into a partnership with Papirværk, which shares their goals and values within sustainability and circular economy. The purpose of the collaboration is to reduce the company's environmental footprint by ensuring that the paper waste is 100% recycled.

This not only leads to concrete actions, but it also creates a sense of common purpose and commitment .”, adds Aida Kildegaard.
Knowledge of the "journey of waste"
Knowledge and understanding of the "journey of waste" is important for a transparent value chain: " Data and documentation are essential to measure our progress and ensure transparency in our sustainability efforts. It allows us to quantify our environmental performance and identify areas where we can further improve our practices. In addition, it is important to be able to report our performance to our stakeholders and demonstrate our commitment to a sustainable future .” - Aida Kildegaard, CSR manager at EXHAUSTO A/S.
