With renewable materials at our foundation, Stora Enso is uniquely positioned to meet new and increased demand on a changing business landscape. Global warming, the growing population and urbanisation are major trends. Additionally, an increasing consumer eco-awareness is driving the call for a greener economy. We have the opportunity to lead a transition to a more sustainable world.
Today, our solutions for paper, packaging, wooden construction and biomaterials are found across continents, in many industries – building, retail, food and beverages, manufacturing, publishing, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, confectionary, hygiene and textiles.
At Stora Enso, we believe anything made from fossil-based materials today can be made from a tree tomorrow. This is our business idea. In coming years, wood- and bio-based solutions will be used all sorts of new ways. Next-generation modular building systems based on trees to reduce the use of concrete, biocomposites from trees to reduce the need for fossil polymers in plastics, and lignin from trees to replace phenol in glues. These are just a few examples that are already in development.
Building on this, we serve many of the strongest brands and companies, helping them to meet their visions and challenges to stay competitive in a world with new lifestyles and demands for responsible, eco-friendly solutions. With our customers – and their customers – at the centre, we offer renewable materials with state-of-the-art know-how, global reach, high precision value chain and superior customer support.
