In 1986, Stralfors was one of the first companies in Sweden to invest in an EDI system for electronic business communication.

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) remains an important element of Stralfors' business, and means that standardised electronic business documents are transmitted automatically between companies. Stralfors also led the way with its environment-friendly computer paper Strålfors Noll [Stralfors Zero], which was launched in 1998. Even Greenpeace took part in a seminar in Copenhagen when the paper was introduced. Sales reached SEK 100 million within just one year of the launch.

The following year saw Stralfors meet the requirements of both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, and when the company celebrated its 75th anniversary in 1994 it was named one of the 25 most environment-friendly publicly listed companies in Sweden by The Natural Step. In 1995, Stralfors launched the very first computer paper in the world manufactured using pulp from totally enclosed bleaching plants – Miljö Plus [Environment Plus].
