It all starts with a unique natural material

The power of Eucalyptus globulus fibres produces a paper which is perfect for your business and your plans for sustainable growth. With its unique characteristics, which creates a stiffer, thicker and more resistant paper, its manufacture requires 46% less wood than for the same amount of regular 80g/m2 paper.

Unique fibre characteristics

Eucalyptus globulus has a higher number of fibres per weight unit for better paper porosity, opacity and formation. It provides superior machine performance levels and enhanced printing quality.

Evergreen tree

Eucalyptus globulus captures CO2 all year around. Because of this permanent photosynthesis, the Eucalyptus globulus is more efficient at using sunlight compared to other trees.

Did you know that?

Our forests provide CO2 storage which is equivalent to the emissions generated by 1.45 million diesel cars around the world.

One ream of Discovery stores an equivalent amount of CO2 to that produced on a journey of 34 km (20 miles) in a diesel car.

Discovery is part of something bigger

The Navigator Company, responsible for Discovery’s production, has made a formal commitment to achieving carbon neutrality in 2035, 15 years ahead of the targets set by the European Union and Portugal. This makes it the first Portuguese company, and one of the first in the world, to set itself this ambitious goal.
