What we have learned from the pandemic
The Covid-19 pandemic has been challenging for our employees in 2020. But it has also created team spirit and new ways of working. These are some of our experiences.
Sustainability throughout the value chain
Sustainability is one of Moelven’s core values, but what does it mean for our suppliers, employees and customers?

New life for sawdust from Moelven
Supporting innovation and identifying new ways to utilise by-products are two areas that Moelven is more than happy to contribute towards. The Wood Region is a project that makes this possible.
What does it mean for me that the products I buy are certified?
It means that you have bought products for which we are able to document that the raw materials originate from sustainable forestry, that the production process adheres to all industry standards and that you can be confident that the products will be of the quality we promise.
Buying local where possible
Smart and larger purchases result in a better climate footprint. “We established a purchasing group at Moelven in 2020. The main purpose is to consolidate all of our agreements and establish new corporate agreements in areas that have a major impact on profitability and sustainability,” says Head of Purchasing for Building Systems, Thomas Hansen.
