DS Smith has announced that Belišće Paper Mill, situated in Eastern Croatia has made significant steps forward in Co2 reductions by switching to green energy to help power its paper making operations. The Belišće Paper Mill which produces up to 215,000 tonnes of paper a year is targeting a 23% reduction in CO2 emissions annually, equating to a saving of up to 27,000 tonnes of carbon. This figure equates to removing nearly 6,000 passenger vehicles off roads, or just under 67 Million miles driven by an average passenger vehicle.

Providing the green energy electricity ZelEn, HEP Opskrba was first to offer this unique product in Croatia. The company ensures the green electricity provided to DS Smith, is produced from renewable sources such as solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, eligible biomass, and low-impact small hydroelectric sources.

“We are very proud to have the Belišće Paper Mill and all our operations across Croatia switch to green energy. Our partnership with HEP Opskrba, who will provide 60% of our energy requirements at the mill, will be a key driver in our overall strategy to reduce the impact of our operations here in Croatia.” said Dalibor Sipl, Energy Manager for DS Smith, in Croatia.

“The partnership with DS Smith across their operations in Croatia will support their environmental goals, as well as protecting natural resources. As we see more companies becoming socially responsible and environmentally aware, DS Smith are leading the way as the one of the biggest users of green electricity in Croatia.” said  Mario Puntaric, Director for HEP Opskrba.
