Limiting global warming is one of today's biggest challenges. As a forest company, we want to contribute and be part of the solution.
Our products are based on renewable raw materials and replace fossil-based materials, our growing forests absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and we continuously work to reduce the impact of our own business. At the same time, we contribute to a positive development of society and our employees.
Fossil free world
Our recyclable products are based on renewable raw materials and replace products with greater climate impact.
SCA's ambition encompasses social, economic and environmental goals, which are integrated into the company’s work and business development. The sustainability profile represents the company’s operations as a whole and is an important element of the SCA brand.
We will contribute to the negative impact of climate change by offering products with low climate footprint, reducing our own emissions of carbon dioxide and through responsible forest management.
We will 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
Correctly utilized forest raw materials are converted into products. The entire tree is utilized and the raw material yield is high. More than 70% of fresh fiber is used for wood products, paper and pulp. The remaining raw material is used for energy and products such as pellets and tall oil. Work is continuously ongoing to further increase the yield and add value.
Responsibility for people and the community
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.
SCAs sustainability targets are specific, measureable and time-limited. The targets presented are those we consider most relevant for SCA’s business operations and stakeholders. For 2019 new sustainability targets have been developed.
