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.
Sustainability is integrated into the entire business and part of SCA's business concept. See more about our work with sustainability in this movie.
