Welcome to SCA

We are driven by the force of the forest

The core of SCA’s business is the growing forest. Around this unique resource, we have built a well-developed value chain based on renewable raw material from our own and others’ forests. 

We offer packaging paper, pulp, wood products, renewable energy, services for forest owners and efficient transport solutions.


SCA and seven other Swedish forest companies as well as the forest machinery manufacturer Komatsu Forest, have jointly developed a new forest machine for low-impact forestry. The concept machine, called Centipede - has with its innovative technology three important benefits: Lower soil compaction, increased productivity and better work environment. The machine is built to reduce the risk of ground damage, to increase transport speed and to reduce whole-body vibrations for the operator.

Fossil free world

Limiting global warming is one of today's biggest challenges. As a forest company, we want to contribute and be part of the solution. Now we set a new goal and increase our climate benefit from 10 to 15 million tons of carbon dioxide per year by 2030 (base year 2019). The long-term goal is a fossil-free value chain. By 2030, we have set the goal of halving fossil emissions in the value chain.

Fossil-free world

A sustainable future

Ongoing projects that strengthen SCA's value chain

With the overall goal to maximize value creation, SCA uses a long-term and systematic approach to developing its value chain. Investments in the industrial structure must be profitable on their own merits and add value throughout the chain.

The world's largest machine for packaging paper
SCA is building a new paper machine for the production of kraftliner at Obbola paper mill in Umeå. The annual production in will increase from the current 450,000 to 725,000 tonnes to meet the growing demand for renewable packaging.

New pulp mill in Sundsvall
The CTMP market is growing globally and with our solid experience and expertise in mechanical pulp, we are now taking an important next step where we will increase production from the current 90,000 tons to 300,000 tons, starting early 2023.

New container port
SCA invests in Tunadal port, Sundsvall, including new cargo handling areas. With this investment we will be able to offer even more efficient and competetive transports of products that are increasing in volumes in our region.

Investment to strengthen competitiveness and improve the environment
SCA invests MSEK 90 in the pulp mill in Östrand. The investment will lead to cost savings but also increase the factory's production capacity. The investment will also improve the local environment by reducing the risk of odour disturbances.

Project wind power
Within Renewable Energy, we develop SCA’s wind power assets and pursue SCA’s expanding involvement in wind energy. Together with our partners, we have helped to realize some of Sweden’s largest wind power ventures. Read more about the projects here.


Climate-neutral biofuel from the forest
Petrol, diesel, aviation fuel and chemicals that are currently produced using oil, may in the future be manufactured from forest and forest industry by-products. Östrand is one potential location for a future biorefinery. Read more about the project here.




Climate-smart whisky made from sustainable energy

A world-class whisky is being produced in an

impressive building by the mighty Ångerman river in northern Sweden. Large amounts of energy are required to produce whisky but at this particular distillery, energy is produced from pellets supplied by SCA.

Tall oil from the forest to become fossil-free biofuel for domestic aviation

SCA tests alternative harvesting method

From above, the site in Tjäderberget Conserva

tion Park looks like a large chess board with forested patches alternated with small harvested areas. SCA has tested a variation of group selection harvesting here with the aim of retaining the feeling of a forest after harvesting and avoiding large treeless areas.

SCA works for a digitalized future

At SCA, we are working with various digitization projects and preparing for the future. In our well-invested facilities, we invest in automated processes and state-of-the-art equipment. Here are some good examples from several areas of the company.

Global premier for remote-controlled High-lift wheel loader over 5G
The global premier of a remote-controlled High-lift wheel loader over 5G is an important step towards remote-controlled machines and safer timber handling. This week, the first live tests have been completed as part of the research project.

Digitalized forest operations for increased sustainability
Forestry is to become more digital so the forest can be utilized in a more efficient and sustainable manner. This is SCA’s position and other players in the forest industry who are now launching the joint research program Mistra Digital Forest.

SHAPE secures the future of our business
SHAPE is a group-wide project that involves both changed working methods and a new common IT system.

Successful innovation program
SCA participates in the Forest Business Accelerator, a business development program in innovation. The accelerator aims to create collaboration opportunities and value for both startups and big companies.

We are Europe's largest private forest owner with 2.6 million hectares of environmentally certified forest land in northern Sweden.
