"Norske Skog Saugbrugs is a traditional cornerstone company with a long and proud history. They are taking their share of responsibility for the green transition and are now working on innovative projects with wood fibre, which they already have in production, as a sustainable alternative to plastic. Both the public and private sectors have contributed to this project. This is a great example of good forces collaborating to get Norway through the transition," says Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.
