Smooth hulls on SCAs RoRo Vessels, an investment in sustainability
Hull blasting, new hard coating and shorter intervals between hull brushing will reduce the fuel consumption and exhaust emissions of SCA’s three RoRo vessels.

Emissions at historically low levels
An improvement project carried out at Obbola paper mill last year, resulted in a dramatic reduction of emissions to the Ume River. Emission levels are still at a very low level after just over a year.

Windpower for sustainability
SCA offers partners an opportunity to build wind power on the Group’s forest land. At the end of 2019, SCA had 485 wind turbines on its forest land with an annual capacity to produce 4.4 TWh. The target of 8 TWh by 2022 will be reached when the ongoing projects are completed.
