“A”- class mill
According to Swedish Environmental Law, Munksjö Paper AB in Billingsfors is a so called “A”-class mill. The business and its environmental work are therefore controlled by decisions (conditions) made by the Environmental Court. The regional authority – “Länsstyrelsen i Västra Götaland”, maintains continuous supervision.
As the paper mill in Billingsfors is located near an environmentally sensitive group of lakes, along the Dalsland Canal, the company must abide by very stringent environmental regulations.
The mill is equipped with its own Environmental laboratory. The company also has one by Swedac accredited Environmental Laboratory according to ISO 17025:2005 to taking of specimens and analyses of waste water. The results are collated every four months and annually in Environmental reports. An independent, officially approved Environmental consultant controls the mill’s activities annually.
