Climate and energy

SCA takes a 360-degree approach to managing its climate change impacts and is setting targets to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, triple the use of forest-based biofuels and increase investments in wind power.

SCA has three sustainability targets related to climate and energy:

  • We will reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels and from purchased electricity and heating by 20% by 2020, with 2005 as reference year.
  • We will triple our production of biofuels from our forests by 2020, with 2010 as reference year.
  • The production of wind power on SCA forest land will increase to 5 TWh by 2020.

Outcome 2013

  • At year-end 2013, CO2 emissions in relation to the production level had declined by 11.8%, compared with the reference year of 2005.
  • In 2013, energy production from SCA’s forest-based biofuels was 909 GWh (870 GWh in 2010).
  • Wind energy from SCA forest land totaled 0.75 TWh (0.4).
