    Sustainable forest management is in our immediate and long-term interest, as it keeps forests healthy and productive, and thus helps to secure the longterm availability of this renewable resource. 

    We practice economically, socially and environmentally sustainable forest and tree plantation management.


    Economic sustainability involves ensuring that forest operations remain viable.

    Social sustainability highlights human and labour rights, health and safety issues, the fair distribution of economic benefits, the multiple use of forests, and the protection of sites with historical, social or cultural importance.

    Our key environmental priorities in sustainable forestry include the conservation of biodiversity, soil protection, and preserving the quality and quantity of water resources

    All of the roundwood, chips, sawdust and externally purchased pulp supplied to our mills comes from sustainable sources. We use forest certification and traceability systems to check that wood has been harvested in compliance with the relevant national and EU legislation, and according to our own policy on Wood and Fibre Sourcing and Land Management.


    Stora Enso mainly procures wood from private forest-owners, state-owned forests and associated companies in Finland, Sweden, the Baltic Countries, Western and Eastern Europe and Russia. We have large-scale tree plantation operations – including some of our own, and others owned through joint ventures – in Brazil, Uruguay and China, as well as a pilot project in Laos. Around 6% of our wood is sourced from tree plantations. Sustainably managed tree plantations also have an increasing strategic importance for us. ​


    The demands of growing human populations mean that we must strive to use land increasingly efficiently
    and produce more from less, in terms of natural resource use.


    Our key performance indicator (KPI) on the land use efficiency of our certified tree plantations measures how efficiently we use land to produce wood. At the same time through forest certification schemes and our own approach to sustainable forestry we ensure that improvements in efficiency do no compromise the ecological and social sustainability of production.

    Stora Enso works according to internationally approved principles and forest management practices,
    and applies established planning procedures when setting up sustainable plantations.

    ​We use traceability systems to ensure that we know the origin of all the wood and pulp we purchase. We promote credible forest certification as a tool to enhance sustainable forest management practices. The two most significant forest certification systems recognised by Stora Enso are run by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™) and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®).

    We use forest certification coverage as a key performance indicator (KPI) to verify that social, environmental and economic aspects are duly taken into account in lands and forests we own or manage.
    The proportion of all forests worldwide certified as being under sustainable management is around 10%. Most of these certified forests are located in North America and Europe. We are actively working with our stakeholders to spread sustainable forest management and enhance certification systems. Stora Enso owns or leases lands with a total area of 1.1 million hectares, and 93% of this total area is certified.

    We aim to offer innovative ways to use land and practise forestry responsibly, thereby creating shared value with local communities in the vicinity of our operations.​


    In Finland and Sweden, where our presence is particularly significant, we operate as part of a vibrant regional forest cluster. Procuring wood as raw material for our mills also creates value for everyone within such clusters, including forest owners, wood supply intermediaries, local entrepreneurs, and logistics.

    Our joint ventures Veracel in Bahia, Brazil and Montes del Plata in Uruguay, and our operations in Guangxi, southern China, are a major part of emerging local industrial clusters around our mills and tree plantations. Our investments in capacity building and local sourcing, local nature conservation, agro-forestry programmes, and income generation projects in local communities all provide examples of ways we are supporting cluster development and shared value creation in these regions.


    Ecological landscape plans and biodiversity assessments conducted to identify valuable habitats form the basis for management planning in our associate forest companies and in tree plantations. Our employees and forestry contractors receive on-the-job training on ecological management.


    We only establish tree plantations on lands with low biodiversity value, such as former pasturelands. All ecologically important areas are identified and duly protected. We also continuously monitor the impacts of our operations on biodiversity, soil and water resources.

  • Environment and Efficiency


    Fax .

    We believe that many key solutions for mitigating climate change and overcoming other environmental challenges will be based on the use of renewable raw materials, cleaner and more energy efficient production processes, and sustainable forest management practices.

    Our ultimate “Vision Zero” is of an industry with no waste to landfill, no harmful air emissions, and no
    wastewater discharges. We realise that this ideal cannot be achieved soon, but this vision nevertheless
    helps us to take the right

    Certified production quality

    Stora Enso has management systems in place to ensure that all our units adapt the relevant best environmental practices. All Stora Enso’s pulp, paper and board production units are certified according to the ISO 14001 management system standard. Find our mills and their certificates by using Stora Enso's Certificate finder.


    Environmental performance of suppliers

    While our own operations play a major role in the value chains of our pulp, paper, paperboard and solid wood products, we also strive to enhance environmental performance along our whole value chain in order to continuously improve our sourcing and the overall environmental performance of our final products. Our responsibility requirements for suppliers and the sustainability audits we conduct at suppliers’ facilities both include strict environmental criteria.



    Stora Enso is constantly working to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions along the company’s value chain. This involves promoting sustainable forestry, creating innovative products based on renewable raw
    materials, and developing cleaner and more efficient operations.


    Most of the greenhouse gas emissions generated by our operations come from the energy we purchase and produce at our mills. The most effective way for us to reduce our fossil CO2 emissions is to further improve our energy efficiency and to increase the share of bioenergy in our total energy use.

    Products with a low carbon footprint

    Stora Enso’s products are based on renewable materials with a comparatively low carbon footprint. Examples include our renewable packaging and wood-based construction solutions. In many cases these products can be used as substitutes for fossil fuel based materials. All of Stora Enso’s divisions have calculated greenhouse gas emissions for their main products.

    Forests and the climate

    Wood is our most important raw material, and the benefits of using forest biomass are manifold. Sustainable forest and plantation management plays a vital role in mitigating global warming. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store the carbon it contains. Carbon is also stored in harvested wood products. As long as forests and plantations are managed sustainably, new generations of trees will grow back after mature trees are logged, absorbing more CO2 from the atmosphere.
    Sustainable forest management also helps to maintain other valuable features of forests, such as
    biodiversity. We promote forest certification and chain-of-custody certification schemes to guarantee that all our wood originates from sustainably managed forests and tree plantations. We also actively combat illegal logging, which is one of the causes of forest loss and degradation, threats to biodiversity and distorted markets for wood.

    Our tree plantations sequester more carbon than the previous land uses, especially in Latin America, where our plantations have almost entirely been planted on modified grasslands and degraded pasturelands. We actively restore and conserve areas of Atlantic rainforest in and around tree plantations we own through our joint venture Veracel in Brazil.


    The cornerstone of Stora Enso’s energy efficiency strategy is our global energy target. Our Group-wide target is to reduce our specific electricity and heat consumption per tonne of pulp, paper and board production by 15% by 2020, compared with the baseline year of 2010. In 2014 this indicator was 4%
    lower than 2010 benchmark level.
    Energy procurement and generation
    Stora Enso’s operations are based on the processing of renewable resources. The most energy intensive phase in Stora Enso’s value chain is the production processes of our paper and board products.

    Stora Enso generates steam and electricity internally for use at our production facilities, and we also purchase fuel, electricity and heat from external suppliers. We strive to secure and enhance access to cleaner energy through strategic partnerships with external energy suppliers.
    Pulp and paper production results in by-products such as black liquor, bark, and different kinds of sludge. These materials together with harvesting residues and recovered wood all constitute important biomass sources for our internal energy generation.


    Almost all of the water we use directly comes from lakes and rivers, and around 95% of this total volume is recycled back to the environment. Water plays a central role in our pulp, paper and board production processes. The structure of paper is dependent on water, as hydrogen bonds are needed to keep the wood fibres together. Water is also used for cooling machinery at the mills, for cleaning, and as a carrier of energy in the form of steam. Water is additionally needed as a medium to carry fibres through production processes.

    Water also plays a key role in creating the electricity we use and purchase, particularly in hydropower plants. Our mills producing solid wood products additionally need low volumes of water in their manufacturing processes.​
    Quality of treated process water
    All our wastewater streams are carefully purified in our treatment plants before being released back into the natural environment. This is essential, since impurities in water discharges can harm ecosystems in lakes, rivers and other natural water bodies. 
    Water use along our supply chain
    We strive to continuously improve water management along our supply chain in order to manage our water-related risks. We require high quality water management from our suppliers as a part of our responsible sourcing. Water issues also are an integral element in our sustainable forest management and land use.
    Active engagements
    We participate actively in various international initiatives related to water. These initiatives include the CEO Water Mandate of the UN Global Compact and the work of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development on water risk assessment tools. Stora Enso is also actively participating in the Water Footprint Network and in the development of an international ISO standard for water accounting.
    Our waste reuse rate across the Group is around 98% today. We are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to reuse materials that would otherwise end up as wastes.

    Stora Enso’s production processes generate various wastes, the vast majority of which are reused as residuals. Such materials include biomass fibres, ash from energy production, lime solids from pulping processes, and wastewater treatment sludge. Many of these materials are used for our internal bioenergy production, or for agricultural purposes, brick manufacturing and road construction by our stakeholders. 

    Stora Enso is one of the largest single consumers of Paper for Recycling (PfR) within the European market. In 2014 the utilisation rate of Paper for Recycling (PfR) in our paper and board production was 26%.

    Through contracts with local authorities and communities we secure volumes of paper from household collection to be sorted and used as a valuable raw material at our mills. This paper is then transported by truck for short distances to sorting plants that are mainly located on our mill sites. After sorting, non-pulpable material is also utilised in our mills own power plants to generate energy.

  • Constructing Kaukopää


    Fax .

    ​In 1934, Enso Gutzeit decided to build a sulphate pulp mill near the Enso mill along the banks of Lake Saimaa, within the vicinity of the Vuoksi River.
    The planning and construction of Kaukopää took place at breakneck speed. May 1934 can be considered the official starting point for the worksite when, just after May Day, lorry driver Jussi Inkinen brought the workers a truckload of spades from the company’s warehouse. An entire train and the required rails, engine and sand trucks as well as ‘Mad John’, a high-power, steam-operated digger, were loaded onto barges at Vuoksenniska Harbour. A tugboat transported the barges along the banks of Lake Saimaa to Kaukopää’s cove. The worksite now had powerful machines to help the spade-wielding workers.
    A stream of construction materials and workers flowed onto the site. Altogether 3 million bricks, thousands of train-loads of cement, 10 million kilograms of construction iron and 100 000 kilograms of nails were needed to erect the most impressive industrial plant of its time. Altogether some two thousand men and women helped build Kaukopää.
    The goal laid down in the mill’s production calculation was to create a plant that would achieve a simply mind-boggling production volume considering the conditions of its day: 80 000 tonnes of strong sulphate pulp when the usual figures achieved by similar mills equalled just 10 000–15 000 tonnes annually. In September 1935, just 13 months after construction commenced, in the wee hours of the 25th, Kaukopää’s first batch of dry pulp came off the Milton machine. And so begins the story of Imatra Mills.

  • Fresnel lens and the luxury of 3D


    Fax .

    Paperboard is heading for new dimensions in the glamorous Pearl Box made by Amsterdam Metallized Products (AMP), who specializes in transfer metallizing, special coatings and laminating films and foils on paper and board.

    The 3D effect on the board surface is achieved through a laminated foil called Fresnel lens. The application requires exceptional smoothness from the board surface and optimal performance in gluing, to ensure perfect adhesion of the foil to the board. These demands are perfectly met by using Stora Enso Ensocoat as the baseboard.

    “We expect especially cosmetics and beverage brand owners to be highly interested in the lens, which has already been seen on a Harry Potter DVD cover. Currently we are holding discussions with a number of new companies which are extremely interested in the Pearl Box. It will be a powerful weapon in the battle for exclusive brands who want to be just that little bit more exclusive,” says Jeroen Pillen, Manager Business Development at AMP.

    AMP is based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from where they serve customers worldwide. AMP’s products are used for packaging, labelling, publishing and promotion in various industries, including tobacco, wine, brewing and spirits, personal care, cosmetics and food.

  • Imatra Mills focus on well-being


    Fax .

    ​Stora Enso’s Imatra Mills will organise a campaign to encourage employees to take care of their well-being.
    The campaign, called “Sykettä elämään” (Pump up your life), will last from September 2014 until March 2015. A monthly changing theme will encourage employees to make positive changes to their lifestyles. The campaign is part of a comprehensive OHS programme taking place at Imatra Mills.
    In 2011, Imatra Mills began its health improvement and preventive work together with Aino Health Management. More than 630 employees have taken part in the health analyses offered by the employer, and some 80 employees have also participated in personal fitness training. Almost 400 have had the condition of their vascular system measured using specialised VaSera measurements that indicate the presence of cardiovascular disease.
    “In addition to health and fitness services, we have at our disposal other measures that improve the well-being of our employees and help them to cope at work. The early intervention model and alternative work and home care allowance practices have proven successful for us over the years. At the moment, changes in practices are being implemented at the mill that affect the work load and work satisfaction of employees. We are also testing rapid shift rotation, which has been found by studies to boost employees’ ability to cope,” says Director, Local HR, Aimo Kettunen. 
    The sick leave rate at Imatra Mills has declined from 7.5% in 2011 to its present level of 4% (9/2014).

  • Mill waste water can be used for breeding jumbo prawns


    Fax .

    ​The idea to breed jumbo prawn in the warm waste water from pulp and paper mills was the winning idea in the Swedish organisation Paper Province’s Warm Water Innovation Challenge recently. Behind the idea is Matilda Olstorpe, CEO of Vegafish AB.

    Breeding jumbo prawns gives the possibility of an eco-friendly, tasty and locally produced foodstuff. Today jumbo prawns are imported from tropical countries and the production is sometimes raising environmental concern. 
     "I think it's good that we try to find use for waste water. The winners will now be able to via the Paper Province develop their idea further", says Peter Olsson, Manager Technology & Investment Sweden within Stora Enso Renewable Packaging, who has been a member of the jury.

  • Main principles of remuneration


    Fax .

    Stora Enso remuneration principles - general overview
    Stora Enso aims to provide a level of remuneration that motivates, encourages, attracts and retains employees of the highest calibre. To maximise the effectiveness of the remuneration policy, careful consideration will be given to aligning the remuneration package with shareholder interests and best market practice.
    A fundamental element in the remuneration principles is the concept of pay-for-performance, and an important aspect of Stora Enso’s approach to remuneration is to look at the total remuneration provided to employees.

    Stora Enso’s total remuneration mix consists of:

    • Annual fixed salary
    • Variable pay components as short-term incentives (cash) and long- term incentives (shares when applicable)
    • Long-term employee benefits (pension, medical and health benefits)
    • Other benefits (car, housing, etc. when applicable)
    Regular external benchmarking is a key to ensure that compensation levels are competitive with the external marketplace. The marketplace is defined as those peer companies with whom Stora Enso competes for recruiting talents and retention of current employees for similar positions. The market will vary depending on functional area and level of the positions concerned. Compensation Review is an annual process with the aim to ensure that Stora Enso employees are being rewarded in accordance with our Remuneration Policy and local regulations, such as labour laws and
    collective agreements.
    The Group Leadership Team annually reviews the performance and potential ratings, as well as the succession planning of its top management in order to secure global principles with local applications.
    Main principles of Board member remuneration
    Remuneration of the Board of Directors is decided annually by the shareholders at the AGM. The AGM in 2016 resolved in accordance with the proposal of the Shareholders' Nomination Board that the members of the Board of Directors be paid the following annual remuneration for their term of office expiring at the end of the AGM 2017

    • for the Chairman of the Board of Directors EUR 170 000

    • for the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors EUR 100 000, and

    • for other members of the Board of Directors EUR 70 000 each.

    The Board members shall use approximately 40% of their annual Board member remuneration to purchase Stora Enso’s R shares from the public market and the purchases shall be carried out during the two weeks following the AGM. The Company has no formal policy requirements for the Board members to retain shares received as remuneration. In addition, the AGM decided that the following annual remuneration be paid to the members of the Board Committees:

    • for the Chairman of the Financial and Audit Committee EUR 20 000, and

  • People and Ethics


    Fax .

    We set high ethical and professional standards throughout our global operations, and fully respect and support the human rights and labour rights of all our employees and the communities around our operations. We are committed to ensure that our workplaces are healthy and safe, and we aim to make Stora Enso an employer of choice.
    Our long-term commitment to respect and support human rights is reflected in our corporate purpose ‘Do good for the people and the planet’.

    Our human rights approach is aligned with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. In addition to people working in our own operations, our commitment extends to our suppliers, business partners, communities surrounding our operations and other stakeholders within our sphere of influence.

    Results from our Group-wide Human Rights Assessments are available in a PDF format. The report is consolidated by the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR).


    Our People Strategy sets out our goals for human capital development, focusing on four key areas:


    Workforce planning and people recruitment

    Alignment and engagement

    Occupational health and safety

    For each of these prioritised areas we have defined ambitions, targets and actions related to our
    personnel. Enhancing our performance in all these areas will contribute to Stora Enso’s overall business
    strategy to transform into a renewable materials company.

    We believe diversity is a key factor behind improved performance and innovation. We consider aspects such as gender, age, nationality and individual differences like varying experiences when assessing diversity within Stora Enso.
    A robust approach to safety issues
    We are striving to become an accident-free workplace, and we start the journey towards this goal every morning. Our leaders play a crucial role in shaping our safety culture, but each employee at our units is responsible for making every workday an accident-free day. Our guiding principle is “Everybody home
    safe, every day”. 
    Ethical business conduct and legal compliance are not only cornerstones of our way of doing business, but also paramount for living up to Stora Enso’s corporate Purpose ‘Do Good for the People and the
    Planet’ and our Value ‘Do What’s Right’.
    We believe that an ethical approach will lead to successful business, foster accountability and enhance our good reputation. Our work aims to strengthen our organisational culture, which encourages our employees and stakeholders to take part in open and honest discussions on ethical issues related to Stora Enso.

    Our operations have wide-ranging impacts on different groups of stakeholders locally, regionally and globally. In addition to minimising any adverse impacts that our activities may have, we also aim to enrich economic and social conditions in the communities where we operate. By creating shared value we aim to increase Stora Enso’s competitiveness, while at the same time promoting improvements on economic, environmental, ethical, and social issues along our value chain.


    Common rules for all employees

    Stora Enso has a single set of values that are applied wherever we operate. Our Code of Conduct defines common rules for all our employees, and provides guidance on Stora Enso’s approach to ethical business practices, environmental values, and human and labour rights.


    Our Business Practice Policy  gives our employees more detailed guidance on topics such as antitrust, corruption, gifts and entertainment, conflicts of interest and money laundering.


    Stora Enso pays taxes in full compliance with all applicable local, national and international laws and regulations. In addition to corporate income taxes we also pay other kinds of taxes such as property and energy taxes. Taxes collected by Stora Enso include value added taxes (VAT) and payroll taxes.
    Stora Enso’s approach to tax planning
    Stora Enso’s approach is to conduct non-aggressive tax planning. This may involve taking advantage of tax incentives granted by governments on reasonable grounds where Stora Enso’s business operations are in alignment with the goals of the incentive scheme.

    Stora Enso has operations in following locations that offer favorable tax treatments:

    Our joint venture Montes del Plata will start running a pulp mill in a Special Economic Zone in Uruguay in 2014.

    Pulp from our joint venture Veracel in Brazil is traded via a pulp sourcing and marketing company based in Amsterdam.

    Stora Enso owns 51% of a holding company in the British Virgin Islands. This holding company came into the Group’s ownership structure with the acquisition of the Inpac International packaging company in July 2011. The holding company does not practice any operating or financing activities, and Stora Enso does not make any tax savings by owning this company.

    Stora Enso holds two companies in Luxembourg and a company in United Arab Emirates. None of these companies is used for tax planning purposes.

  • A very successful market entry, good for us and good for Uruguay


    Fax .

    ​By Alexandre Nicolini, SVP Sales and Supply Chain, Stora Enso Biomaterials
    In spite of the one year start-up delay of our new state-of-the-art pulp mill in Uruguay, Stora Enso BEKP “Perform Plus” has generated a lot of interest from our customers, ever since the mill started production in June 2014.  


    This interest, along with a very successful market entry strategy and product positioning allowed us to commercialize almost the entire production in record time. In fact, we wish to have had more capacity available in order to fulfil all our customers demand!
    From a market perspective, the additional BEKP capacity that we brought in has been fully absorbed by the market with no impact whatsoever on prices, even if the general market consensus at the time of the start-up was that prices would come under heavy pressure due to the additional volumes entering the market.

    Nevertheless and, against all odds, prices have actually remained stable during the 2nd half of 2014 (the year of the start-up) and, they are currently in an upward trend since Q1 and Q2 of 2015. Pulp demand has been healthy, it is true, but having established the right portfolio of customers in a more balanced way in all regions made the difference and, it has allowed us to position our new product on a very competitive level.


    The feedback received from our customers are very encouraging, I must say, giving us extra energy to further boost sales and focus on selected customers. Also, it is important to emphasize that our customers are very pleased with the overall service level provided by Stora Enso, which is the result of very good and solid relationships established by the Sales team, the excellent Technical Support given, the highly efficient CSC and, last but not least, the reliable supply chain. Such a positive feedback means that our teams have worked hard and were able not only to read, but also to properly address our customers’ needs.
    From an operational point of view, the mill has now produced over a million tons of pulp and its operational efficiency has already reached world class levels. Montes del Plata is now producing around 3,672 tons every day and, the production team is now working towards stabilizing the overall quality parameters, even though our pulp has been fully qualified by our customers.
    In addition to being a great growth engine for Stora Enso, Montes del Plata also strongly contributes to Uruguay’s GDP growth, positively developing the whole country economically by creating direct and indirect employment.

  • Stora Enso Perform Plus- A year into product development


    Fax .

    ​By Jenny Muller-Wahlman, TCS Manager


    Stora Enso Perform Plus is the Eucalyptus pulp grade produced in Montes del Plata Uruguay. The mill has now been running for a year, and lots has been accomplished in order to bring the product to the highest industry standards.


    Over the last year, we were able to greatly improve the product’s strength properties. Strength properties have increased a lot and we still are working on bringing these properties to the highest level possible to match our customers’ needs.

    Despite its early development stage and many improvements yet to come, Stora Enso Perform Plus ran into tissue, speciality and printing paper production lines all over the world with very encouraging technical results and many positive feedbacks from our customers.
    Product development is a journey. In the case of Perform Plus, we are taking it with both speed and accuracy.
