Stora Enso Introduces Low Carbon Paperboard for Chocolate Packaging

As chocolate producers and brand owners look to lower their environmental impact, Stora Enso’s new plastic-free, lightweight board designed for premium packaging helps customers decrease their carbon footprint and meet the needs of consumers looking for eco-friendly products.

Performa Light™ by Stora Enso is a renewable and recyclable board for premium folding cartons typically used in packaging of chocolate and confectionery, as well as beauty products.

Performa Light allows for 70 percent reduction of CO2 emissions in production compared to competition due to fossil-free energy production and a patented fiber treatment technology, FiberLight Tec™ by Stora Enso, to save energy and raw material. The board has a very low weight and an improved strength due to microfibrillated cellulose in the structure, resulting in less waste and lower CO2 emissions in transport. On top of the strong environmental performance, customers can benefit from Performa Light’s high print quality due to its whiteness and brightness.

“Consumers increasingly choose brands who enable them to lead eco-friendly lives. By offering a low carbon product for chocolate packaging, we can help confectionery brands meet this demand by making a difference in the battle against climate change”, says Öystein Aksnes, vice president, liquid packaging and carton board at Stora Enso.
