  • SCA contractor creates jobs for women from Ukraine

    The war in Ukraine affects many forestry contractors, who have not been able to hire enough staff. Åke Backman in Älvsbyn has only got hold of a fraction of his staff, but some could be solved thanks to the fact that he hired women who fled the war in Ukraine. ”I have seven women from Ukraine who work for me and then I let a few more women with young children live in my houses, which are still empty because of the staff shortage,” says Åke.

  • SCA's world-unique electric timber truck from Scania has arrived

    To further strengthen the sustainable value chain, SCA has, together with Scania, developed the world's first electric timber truck with a capacity of 80 tonnes. SCA's goal is to make the entire value chain fossil-free. "We have come a long way in industrial processes, which are already 96 percent fossil-free. We are very pleased that we together with Scania can break new ground to make the heaviest transports fossil-free," says Hans Djurberg, Head of Sustainability at SCA.

  • SCA’s new container port – important for development of the region

    SCA is currently building a new container port in Sundsvall. The port lies directly adjacent to the logistics park, and will thereby be part of Sweden’s most important transport hub. “More and more people are starting to see how the logistics investments are benefiting the entire region. Sustainable and efficient transport is important for encouraging companies to establish themselves here,” says Jens Olsson, Technical Director at SCA.

  • The dual positive climate effect of forests

    Forests sequester large amounts of carbon dioxide as they grow. However, they also have considerable climate impact when they are felled because products produced using wood form forests replace fossil-based products so that oil and coal can be left in the ground.  “We must consider both these parameters to be able to make political decisions that have the greatest positive impacts on the climate. There is a holistic calculation model that helps do just that,” says Peter Holmgren, an expert on forestry and climate.

  • SCA designates landscapes for endangered species

    SCA has designated ten Action Plan (Sw. Åtgärdsprogram or ÅGP) landscapes that contain concentrations of species with particular requirements and are included in special action plans. The approximately 30 ÅGP species are also on SCA’s list of protected species. “Simply put, this is about doing the right thing at the right location. We are now raising our level of ambition in relation to nature conservation measures in both forests with nature conservation targets and in forests with production targets,” says Anna Cabrajic, forest ecologist at SCA.
