Borregaard is a world leading biorefinery that produces biochemicals from Norway spruce (Picea abies). With increasing attention towards sustainable production and reduction of greenhouse gases, they experience increased interest in how emissions of greenhouse gases, and biogenic CO2 in particular, of a product are calculated and how potential greenhouse gas savings can be communicated. NORSUS has therefore been commissioned by Borregaard to summarize different standards and frameworks that are relevant for Borregaard’s reporting and communication of environmental information. Focus has been on CO2, with a special emphasis on biogenic CO2.
