Forests and climate
When renewable products are chosen to replace fossil-based or other non-renewable alternatives, they have significant benefits for society. Eventually, when the products have reached the end of their lifecycle, they can also be used as renewable and carbon neutral energy that can replace fossil-based energy.
Fighting against climate change with healthy forests
Stora Enso’s aim is to develop the forest carbon sequestration potential and the reduction of value chain emissions in our operations. It is estimated that our own forests remove 1.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere annually. In addition to that, we purchase wood that sequesters another 5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year. As a company, we will keep researching both traditional methods and innovative solutions to help fight climate change. We want to be part of the solution.
