Boliden contributes towards a more circular economy
As a sustainability leader in the metals and mining sector, Boliden clearly has a role to play in meeting the societal need for metals as sustainably as possible.
The circularity gap
According to the Circularity Gap Report by Circle Economy, only 9 percent of the resources used globally are cycled back into the economy after use.

For example, being one of Europe’s largest recyclers of used lead-acid batteries, benefiting from decades-long resource-effective industrial synergies, and continuously finding new methods of creating value from our own waste materials.
