We manage our forest on a long-term basis with the ambition to integrate productive and profitable forestry management with effective nature conservation that preserves biological diversity.
The aim of our forest management is to have as much timber, biodiversity and nature experiences in our forests in the future as we have today.
This is how we work
Our nature conservation strategy integrates nature conservation measures with our practical forest management.
Environmental consideration is a natural part in all we do in our forests. The environmental consideration encompasses; nature conservation consideration, cultural heritage consideration, consideration to recreation and outdoor life together with consideration to reindeer operations.
In our ecological landscape planning (ELP), we set aside conservation areas. By doing this we can preserve the plants and animals that live in the forest.
SCA's forest management is certified. This means that we comply with the guidelines for responsible forestry.
Our guidelines for the environmental work in SCA Skog and raw materials shows how we handle these issues.
