Climate & Energy

SCA is working in many ways to reduce its climate impact. We continuously work with energy efficiency and to reduce the climate impact of our products. We invest in the production of renewable energy, such as biofuels and wind power. Our forests also net absorb 4.1 million tons of CO2.

CO2 - Climate & Energy
TARGET
We will reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels and from purchased
electricity and heating by 20% by 2020, with 2005 as reference year. We will triple our production of biofuels from our forests by 2020, with 2010 as the reference year.

The production of wind power on SCA forest land will increase to 5 TWh by 2020.

OUTCOME 2016
At year-end 2016, CO2 emissions in relation to the production level had
declined by 18.4%.

SCA's production of biofuel from its own forests amounted to 740 GWh. Wind energy from SCA forest land totaled 2.3 TWh.
