Our operations are an important element in the solution for combatting the negative effects of climate change. We have a high level of net growth – three million forest cubic meters per year – in our forests. Growth captures and binds carbon dioxide, and our renewable fiber is used in innovative product development to create exciting opportunities to replace fossil based materials and products.

Growing trees bind carbon dioxide. Through photosynthesis, they use carbon dioxide in the air to build wood fiber. As growth is higher than harvesting in our forests, we bind more and more carbon dioxide and thereby combat climate changes. In this way, we bind four million tons of carbon dioxide, net, each year. This is eight-times more than the total emissions of carbon dioxide from fossil sources for the entire business, from production of seedlings to the delivery of products to our customers.
