Sustainability is integrated into the entire organisationand is part of SCA’s business concept. The Group’s sustainability platform shows how SCA delivers sustainable development and makes a direct or indirect contribution to all the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
We will contribute to reducing global warming by offering products with low climate impact, reducing our own emissions of carbon dioxide and responsibly manage our forests.
SCA's target is to mange our forests in a way so that they are at least as rich in the future of raw material, biodiversity and experiences as today.
Efficient use of resources
SCA works continuously to further improve resource efficiency. The sawmills work in various ways to improve yield and pulp mills to improve wood consumption levels. Currently, more than 65% of fresh fiber is used for wood products, paper, pulp and pellets. The remaining raw material is used for electricity and energy and for other products, such as tall oil and biofuels.
Responsibility for people and the community
Success and sustainable development are dependent on dedicated employees and partnerships in local communities. We will develop together with the communities where operates and we will be a safe and inclusive employer where employees reach their full potential.
SCA is a credible and responsible company with a value-based culture that is an integrated part of the way we address people, conduct business and operate throughout the entire value chain. SCA is a trustworthy company with a high level of integrity both among employees and with suppliers.
Strategy for profitable growth
SCA’s values are based on a belief in the importance of forests for a sustainable future for everyone. A long-term approach and sustained profitability are central to SCA’s strategic direction and, together with dedicated employees, innovation and continuous improvement, create profitable growth.
