Forests aren’t simply a gathering of trees that can be used for renewable products. They are living ecosystems that are vital not only for our planet but also for people in many ways – for wellbeing, recreation, tourism, hunting and in many other ways. We at Stora Enso support initiatives and groups working with developing different values.
There are significant values in forests beyond the trees. This can be anything from setting up large-scale wind power plants or small-scale cattle farming, to traditional beekeeping and resin harvesting. Every forest is unique. In all forest development, we are mindful of local traditions and in ongoing dialog with stakeholders.
