Environmentally friendly wallpapers
Our goal is sustainability
Boråstapeter is a modern company that takes an active approach to sustainability, from idea right through to finished product. In choosing wallpapers from Boråstapeter, you are choosing non-toxic, environmentally friendly wallpapers made in our own factory just outside Borås, Sweden.
It is our responsibility to ensure that the environment and sustainability are always in our minds when implementing any ideas, decisions or actions. Boråstapeter’s wallpapers should be as environmentally sound as they are artistic. Beautiful, environmentally friendly wallpapers, completely free of harmful substances.
The raw materials used in our wallpapers are supplied exclusively by northern European paper groups that practise sustainable forestry. We do not use PVC or harmful solvents in production, and we work only with water-based inks and surface treatments that we can safely process at our own treatment plant.
We are constantly striving to reduce our energy use in wallpaper production, and we are also trying to reduce waste throughout the entire process, from roll production to printing.
The waste generated by our production plant in Borås is disposed of and turned into district heating for the town of Borås. And, when you receive your finished rolls of wallpaper from Boråstapeter, you will see they are packaged in recyclable materials.
Our production maintains the highest standards in environmental and safety requirements. Which is why all of Boråstapeter’s wallpapers are made in Sweden and CE-labelled in accordance with European standards for wallpaper.
This environmental certification (SS-EN15102) means that our wallpapers follow the EU directive on emissions of formaldehyde, heavy metals and a range of other harmful substances, while meeting a number of basic requirements relating to health, safety, functionality and more.
All production takes place at our factory in Borås, Sweden, and we use a base paper that is both easy to work with and a strong and durable EasyUp material. All of this ensures that you can wallpaper with no mess, minimal preparatory work and, above all, a clear conscience, without compromise to the environment.
Since 2018, WallVision Sweden AB has been FSC-certified. This means that we print our wallpapers on FSC-certified materials. Which in turn means that you can rest assured that the raw wood material used to produce our paper and non-woven wallpapers comes from sustainably managed forests. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organisation that works to ensure that forests are managed in an environmentally, socially and economically responsible way.
