Our raw material

The raw material used at W. Hamburger for papermaking is recovered paper. Thus, we contribute to waste prevention and show how economic success can be achieved while protecting the environment.


FSC® certification

By using recovered paper instead of wood fibres as raw materials for the manufacturing of their products, companies like W. Hamburger make an important contribution to the responsible management of forests. These companies may certify their products according to the FSC® standards.

The W. Hamburger GmbH has successfully completed the certification process and is listed in the FSC® database (, license code: FSC-C106599) Our products have been FSC®-certified since 2011 which makes our contribution to responsible forestry transparent for our customers.

Protection of the environment

The sustainable use of renewable resources poses the greatest challenge of the 21 century to the industry.

We make sure that resources are used economically during production: By constantly improving our manufacturing processes, we oontinue to reduce the use of water and energy.

We have invested 10 million euros in measures aimed at further reducing emissions and the strain on the environment.

Circular economy – how does it work?

Our corrugated board base is made of recovered paper which is supplied to our customers in industry and trade, then sold to end consumers and finally returned to the waste paper collection. Turning old into new is what nature teaches us.
