Stora Enso uses and develops its expertise in renewable materials to meet the needs of its customers and many of today’s global raw material challenges. Our products provide a climate-friendly alternative to many products made from competing non-renewable materials, and have a smaller carbon footprint. Our solutions based on wood therefore have wide-reaching benefits for us as a business, for people and for the planet. Being responsible – doing good for the people and the planet – underpins our thinking and our approach to every aspect of doing business.
Stora Enso is transforming to a value-creating, growth markets renewable materials company. We will focus more on growth markets in China and Latin America, and fibre-based packaging, plantation-based pulp and competitive paper grades. Fibre-based packaging offers steady long-term growth in most segments and has vast innovation potential, offering sustainable new solutions for our customers. Plantation-based pulp allows us to secure low-cost fibre for production.
