Our work starts with responsibility

We always strive to do everything we can to act as a role model in how to connect and align with communities, our people and stakeholders.

Purpose and values

​​​​Our Purpose is Do good for people and the planet. Replace fossil-based materials with renewable solutions. The purpose underpins our belief that everything that can be made with fossil-based materials today can be made from a tree tomorrow, and highlights Stora Enso’s opportunity to contribute to a greener economy
With our Values, “Lead” and “Do What’s Right” we endeavor to set the example and to lead in all aspects of our business as well as sustainability. We dare to take the initiative and constantly ask ourselves what more can we do, what we can do better. 

Our purpose and values are underlined by our continuing commitment to promote a more sustainable future, one less dependent on fossil fuels and supporting a bioeconomy where the production and consumption of products are based on wood as a renewable resource. Wood fibre-based products store carbon and can also replace non-renewable materials such as plastic, glass, steel, concrete and fossil fuels. With global warming, growing populations, urbanisation, changing life styles and eco-awareness, trees can be a big part of the solution for our customers and their consumers towards a sustainable bioeconomy.

Our commitment to renewability is not only about our raw material. It is also linked to resource traceability and responsibility, production and material efficiency, logistics and supply chain, and the core of our sustainability agenda.  From the forest or plantation to the end product, we work responsibly and with respect to local rules and regulations. We continue our push for carbon neutrality as well as our focus on human rights and on-the-ground investments in communities where we operate.  Everything we do aims to meet the needs of our customers and to be the best choice in renewable solutions.
