SCA produces and sells renewable products that can replace fossil-based alternatives and thereby contribute to reducing global warming. SCA also contributes to climate benefit through the net growth of the company’s forests, which capture CO2 from the atmosphere, and by continuously striving to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its own value chain.

Fossil-free world

SCA’s operations are climate positive and contribute in several ways towards important climate solutions and a fossil-free world.

Fossil-free value chain
The aim is that SCA’s value chain is to become fossil-free. SCA’s own industrial processes are 95% fossil-free thanks to the bioenergy from its own forest raw materials.

Renewable energy
SCA is now one of Europe’s largest producers of forest-based bioenergy, with a total production of about 11.9 TWh per year. In Sweden, SCA has three pellets factories and we leases out forest land for wind power production. SCA also develops products for the next-generation of biofuels and green chemicals.
