Invercote, the material in packaging for Apple among others, comes from Iggesund Mill and well-managed forests.
There is a very special history behind why Iggesund is a supplier to Apple. It was the company’s legendary founder and former CEO Steve Jobs who decided that Iggesund would supply the material for Apple’s packaging.

Employees travelled around the world and collected possible materials. When the samples were later presented at the headquarters in Cupertino, Jobs pointed to Invercote from Iggesund and said : “This is the one we want”.

The manufacturer, Iggesund Paperboard, is part of the Holmen forest industry group and is at the forefront of sustainability.

“We have been harvesting and maintaining Swedish forests in a traditional and sustainable way for the past 400 years. Everything starts with long-term sustainable forestry. For us it is natural to work in a climate-compensating way and based on a value chain where all stages are important” said Holmen’s CEO Henrik Sjölund.
