  • 斯道拉恩索广西简介 Stora Enso Guangxi in Brief


    Fax .


    ​​​       “斯道拉恩索广西”是广西壮族自治区目前最大的外商投资项目,也是斯道拉恩索公司迄今为止最大规模的投资项目,预计投资总额约16亿欧元。斯道拉恩索公司与广西林业集团、北海林业投资发展公司及世界银行旗下的国际金融公司(IFC)联合组建合资企业,共同负责项目运营发展。




    Stora Enso Guangxi, with a total expected investment of around EUR 1.6 billion, is so far the largest foreign-funded project in Guangxi Province, and also the biggest investment made by Stora Enso to date. Operations are managed by equity joint-venture companies established by Stora Enso, the Guangxi Forestry Group, the Beihai Forestry Investment &Development Co., Ltd. and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group.

    The integrated operation will consist of two phases, starting with a consumer board mill with an annual capacity of 450,000 tonnes of liquid packaging cardboard and other high-grade paperboard products. The board mill is located in the Tieshangang industrial zone, 40 miles outside of Beihai city. The Stora Enso Guangxi Mill will be put into operation in mid-2016.

    Stora Enso Guangxi has leased around 85,000 hectares of land for plantation covering four operating territories in Guangxi – Nanning, Yulin, Beihai and Qinlian. Since 2012, the plantations of Stora Enso in Guangxi have passed the annual certification of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) and the China Forest Certification Council (CFCC®) which will provide a sustainable, cost-competitive and self-sufficient fibre base for the mill.

    After the full operation, Stora Enso Guangxi will generate around 1,000 direct jobs and 30,000 indirect jobs in forestry, logistics, machinery, chemical industry and other related industries and service industry. At present, Stora Enso Guangxi has 1,100 employees or so, and about 800 of them are from Guangxi Province. According to the evaluation report by the United Nations Development Program in 2010, the operation of Stora Enso Guangxi will create significant positive socio-economic impact.

    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.​
    Stora Enso’s Ethics and Compliance function is part of the Group’s Legal Services. The Head of Ethics and Compliance, our General Counsel, is responsible for Stora Enso Ethics and Compliance and reports directly to the CEO. Our Ethics and Compliance Board, which is a management-level governance body appointed by the CEO, monitors and assesses the Group’s legal compliance and ethical business conduct.
    Code of Conduct

    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.

    To ensure our employees understand and follow the rules set out in our Code of Conduct, they receive related training through our established e-learning tool or face-to-face training.


    Business Practice Policy

    In 2011 Stora Enso launched a new Business Practice Policy to complement our Code of Conduct, aiming to further strengthen our stand on ethical business practices. The policy gives our employees more detailed guidance on topics such as antitrust, corruption, gifts and entertainment, conflicts of interest and money laundering.

  • 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.

The index assesses the impact and strengths/weaknesses of individual cartonboard brands, benchmarks the leading brands against each other and evaluates the success of individual brand strategies over time. Tambrite enjoys high awareness and loyalty, especially in pharma & healthcare, frozen & chilled food and dry food. When it comes to companies, Stora Enso has the highest supplier awareness.
    377 brand owners from seven countries, representing six different end-use segments (pharmaceutical & healthcare, cosmetics & beauty care, chocolate & confectionery, dry food, frozen & chilled food, wine & spirits), responded to the survey in spring 2014. The countries were Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands.
    The survey was also conducted among 220 carton converters. Tambrite was the best-known cartonboard brand among converters, with Performa and Ensocoat also in the top five in spontaneous brand awareness. Since the last survey in 2012, Ensocoat took a big step upwards in the converters’ BEI, rising from 8th to 5th place.

  • Taking water management to the next century


    Fax .

    Global water scarcity doesn’t come first to mind when you are standing on the clear shores of Sweden´s largest lake, Vänern. Nevertheless, Skoghall Mill, located by the lake, has decided to scrutinize its fresh water use. Why has water management risen so high on the sustainability agenda of this Nordic mill living a midst abundant water reserves?
    100 years by the lake
    Water has always played a central role in Skoghall Mill, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of paperboard for liquid and foodstuff packaging. 100 years ago, when the mill first started-up, logs were drifted along the waters for sawing. These days, water is used in production, heating, cooling and cleaning processes.

    Today you could jump in for a swim or fish right in front of the mill. However, the situation hasn’t always been the same. Just a few decades ago the waters were polluted by fibrous wastes and other discharges. “Still in the 70s you could see white rafts of foam floating in the front of the mill, but thanks to improved waste water treatment facilities in municipalities, industry and agriculture, the levels of dissolved organic materials in the water have been restored to preindustrial levels.” explains Margareta Sandström, Environmental Manager at Skoghall Mill. 

    The mill has done numerous improvements in its water management systems during the past decades. “We can be proud of the fact that even though the mills production capacity has steadily increased over the years, we have been able to cut the chemical oxygen demand of our effluents significantly, meaning that the discharged water has less organic pollutants” says Lennart Vieweg, Environmental Engineer at Skoghall Mill.

    However, taking care of the ecological state of the European Union´s largest lake can’t be achieved alone. Vieweg participates on behalf of Stora Enso in the work of the Lake Vänern Society for Water Conservation. This organisation provides a forum for discussing issues related to the lake's water quality, and identifying the necessary solutions. The mill also cooperates with local universities and research facilities to stay aware of any changes in the lakes condition.

    What can be measured, can be managed
    In 2017 the mill stepped up a new gear in its water management as a new target was set in place. “In the next three years we aim to decrease our water use by 10% compared with the levels of 2016,” explains Sandström. 

    “Currently we use 100 000 of cubic meters of water daily. Approximately 60 % of it´s used in the process and 40 % is used for cooling and heating. We both take water from the lake as well as discharge water into it after having it carefully purified. Our high-performing wastewater treatment systems ensure that discharged water is ecologically safe and meets all regulatory requirements.” explains Klas Norborg Development Engineer.  Group-wide almost 96% of the water Stora Enso withdraws is recycled back to the local environment after being carefully purified.

    “As a first step towards the target we will place emphasis on closely measuring and visualising our water intake.” describes Tomas Gustafsson, Environmental Engineer at Skoghall.  A clear way of monitoring and measuring is important so that we can focus our work on the right actions and optimize our processes.” adds Senior Specialist Matts Hjort.

     “All of this is environmentally as well as economically smart,” stresses Sandström. “When we use less water, we need fewer chemicals for purification. In addition, we can cut our energy costs as processes needed for water circulation in the mill can be decreased.” 

    Small streams make great rivers
    Progress to achieve the target is already on the way. Smart, sustainable solutions don’t always mean massive investments or brand new technologies. For example the mill has applied circular economy thinking by keeping water longer in closed loops. 

    “We´ve already been able to reduce our mill´s fresh water intake by replacing it with recycled and cleaned filtrate in one of our board machines,” explains Norborg. “At the same time we have been able to recover fibre from the water so that they don’t end as effluent, but as raw material for new board." 

    Finding savvy ways to utilise wastewater sludge that is created during the purification processes is also important. Wastewater sludge is used as bio-based energy at the mill, after the dryness and energy value has increased through an effective screw press. Sludge can also be used in the production of soil fertilizers.

    Clean water also for the coming 100 years
    Like Skoghall, most of Stora Enso´s production units are located in regions where water is relatively abundant. This however doesn’t mean that water should be taken for granted.  Water scarcity may impact our operations in the long term through our supply chains, and as controls on pollution, recycling, and water pricing are toughened.  To ensure a group-wide focus on water, Stora Enso introduced a new KPI for total water use at its board, pulp, and paper mills in 2017. 

    Sandström also sees a need for a shift in the way water is thought about. “As much as improving our water management is about technical improvements it should also be about the way we think about water. Water is a scarce commodity that can only be loaned - nothing is for free. Just a few decades ago for example we didn’t regard steam energy as something that has a price tag on it. I believe the same thing is happening to the way we think about water.”

  • Water


    Fax .

    We strive to continuously reduce water use at our pulp, paper and board mills. Reducing the water demand of our mills helps to improve the energy and material efficiency of our production.
    Water management is one of our long-term focus areas. Our environmental targets include quantitative and qualitative targets for process water discharges.
    Our assessments of water-related risks in our operations and our supply chain indicate that almost all of Stora Enso’s production units are located in regions where water is a relatively abundant resource.
    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. This recycling occurs either after appropriate treatment (for process water), or without treatment where this is not necessary (for cooling water).
    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.​
    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.
    Stora Enso uses top class wastewater treatment systems to ensure that the water we release is purified, ecologically safe, and meets all regulatory requirements. Our water treatment systems also recycle water within mills where feasible, reducing the need for water intake.
    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.
    Trees need water to grow, and forests play a vital role in the water cycle, for instance by storing and purifying water. Both natural and planted forests use more water than other types of vegetation cover, including cropland and pastureland.
    Forests’ significant contributions to the hydrological balance include their positive impacts on water quality. In forests pollutants are filtered out of rainwater by the undergrowth and forest litter in the topsoil. Forests also reduce soil erosion and the consequent accumulation of sediments in water bodies downstream.
    Stora Enso does not establish tree plantations in hydrologically sensitive areas. We carefully monitor soil conditions and the availability of water in our plantations. Eucalypt species utilise water efficiently, since they need less water per unit of produced biomass than agricultural crops.
    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.

  • Skoghall Mill represented at Interpack


    Fax .

    ​Fredrik Werner, Segment Development Manager Food & Beverages at Stora Enso, has just arrived home from the packaging fair Interpack, which takes place every three years in Dusseldorf, Germany. It is listed as one of the world 's leading packaging trade fairs.

    Stora Enso was one of over 2700 companies from 60 countries represented with a stand at this event.
    - There was a great interest in Stora Enso's products from converters ( = packaging manufacturers) and brand owners. Many of the visitors wanted to discuss what sort of packaging material that we can recommend them to their new ideas of packages, says Fredrik Werner.

    Interpack is an important forum to maintain relationships with existing customers and suppliers and also for making new contacts. Recent trends in the packaging industry are presented at the exhibition. The number of visitors was estimated at about 170 000 people. The fair was run 8 to 14 May.

    Fredrik Werner also gave a speech at the fair along with the Finnish designer Renne Angelvuo. The lecture was about how new packaging innovations can help to reduce food waste.

  • 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.

  • Under the Arab sun


    Fax .

    T​he Middle East and North Africa (MENA) represent developing markets with a young and growing population facing rapid urbanisation. The United Nations expects MENA’s population to grow up to more than 470 million by 2030. The growth of the Arab world is also supported by large housing projects and other governmental investments to build up local infrastructure.
    The value in artisanal life
    Unique artisanal and design traditions have been the foundation of Arab economies and cultures for centuries, as the artisan’s life is considered a heritage passed down across generations. Local construction is not industrialised but often done by hand in small father and son companies. This artisanal culture is still today valued and protected by commanding high import duties on further processed sawn timber.
    This prevents Stora Enso from developing business in MENA towards more value-added products.
    “We compensate that by having the most efficient and unique sales channels and service – steady monthly shipments to customers with big volumes, enabling reasonable freight costs, good product quality, large product mix from several suppliers and efficient document flow. Our business in this market has been developing steadily,” says Satu Härkönen, Business Development Director, Overseas, in Stora Enso Building and Living.
    Shopping at the port
    Even if there is a long tradition of building with wood in MENA, the region lacks local raw wood material and a wood products industry, so imported sawn timber goods are essential for building sustainable infrastructure. Stora Enso Building and Living ship pine and spruce sawn timber goods from the company’s North and Central European units to the sunny ports of Casablanca, Alexandria, Sousse and Jeddah amongst others. At the destination port, packages labelled with company logos change hands and the sawn goods are loaded onto lorries and delivered to importers’ and wholesale customers’ yards.

     “In practice this means several cups of coffee or tea, eating together and long conversations, both business and non-business. Rush does not exist in this culture,” Härkönen​ says.
    Person to person
    Everything is based on trust and long relationships in the Arab world. “In practice this means several cups of coffee or tea, eating together and long conversations, both business and non-business. Rush does not exist in this culture,” Härkönen has learned. Stora Enso’s customers in the MENA area are private entrepreneurs and therefore very business-minded. Usually business is done verbally, face to face. Phone calls are also important, e-mail is seldom used.
    In Europe business is done quarterly but in the Arab world business is usually done on monthly basis – every month the discussions start again.
    “It’s not common to use written contracts and no signatures are needed. Arrival of a letter of credit is the final guarantee of the deal. It is also important to have local agents on the spot making sure that we meet our customers often, but also to get the latest, most reliable information about their situation,” Härkönen says.

  • New showroom built in Amsterdam


    Fax .

    ​​​​​​Wood Products' Amsterdam unit proudly opens up its brand new showroom, where customers and other stakeholders can see the wooden products in their real-life end usages.

    "We wanted to build this showroom because we are offering a range of new product concepts for our customers. The showroom is about presenting our products in real use so that the customers will get an idea how products can be used and how do they look like inside the stores, that Stora Enso supplies," says Allard Eckhardt taking care of Product development and quality issues in Wood Products' Amsterdam unit. Allard has also been actively participating in the showroom creation.


    "We are trying to increase the amount of value added products for decorative and design purposes. Customers want to see how these products look like and what they can do with it. It is quite different from selling classic sawn and planed wood," he continues.

    Showroom is built with products that are new in the markets or that are special in some other way.

    "It is all about giving wider range of examples what you can do with wood – the renewable and sustainable raw material of ours."

  • A premium rigid box by Stora Enso supports the brand value of Valkee


    Fax .

    ​A DesignStudio workshop held at Lahti mills was the starting point for co-operation between Stora Enso Packaging Solutions and Valkee Oy.

    Valkee is a Finnish health technology company focused on harnessing the benefits of bright light for the human mind and performance. Already during the very first workshop a clear vision of the future packaging was created – an innovative and premium product, bright light headset, required an innovative and premium approach also for the packaging.

    Zoltan Kovacs, a packaging designer from Stora Enso’s DesignStudio in Komarom came onboard and the planning of the new packaging was kicked-off. A rigid-box was chosen as a solution as it offers unique touch and feel properties through the matt silk surface and high quality offset printing combined with sharp edges on boxes.

    Not only the outer part but also the inner part of the package required a new approach. A plastic inner tray, which is typically used in this kind of packages, was replaced by a solution with nice structural finesse and made of 100% renewable and recyclable raw materials.

    The experiences of the new packaging have been very positive” says Pekka Somerto, the Managing Director of Valkee Oy. “The Silky matt feeling combined with smooth unpacking experience truly support a positive and holistic user experience which is further supported by the nice inner part.” The upgrading project of the package was a true success story: “The premium product is now supported by a premium package” concludes Somerto.

  • Safety comes first at Beihai Mill


    Fax .

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Stora Enso is constructing its largest mill investment to date, the Beihai Mill in Southern China, to high safety standards under challenging circumstances.
    The construction of the board mill is part of Stora Enso’s expanding operations in Guangxi Province in Southern China, which include nearly 85 000 hectares of tree plantations. “We see responsible operations as a prerequisite for the wider success of our operations in Guangxi,” explains Sari Sarin, Head of Occupational Health and Safety, Employee Well-being. “High standards of safety and consideration for our entire workforce, both during construction and operation, reinforce our commitment to be a good corporate citizen.”
    Overcoming local safety challenges
    The complex construction project has posed significant safety challenges, which have been compounded by the need for a ​large number of contractors, and up to 4 000 workers on site during the peak of construction. In addition, we have prioritised local contractors, including many with low safety awareness at the start of the project.
    “In order to overcome these challenges, we have implemented a comprehensive safety programme that has involved extensive training, clearly defined protocols for workers, and strict monitoring procedures,” explains Sari Sarin. “This has made safety a natural part of our day-to-day activities.”

    Promoting worker safety
    “Our approach involves treating contractors as our own employees, meaning that the entire workforce must adhere to Stora Enso’s standards of safety and responsibility,” explains Sarin. “We have also established a very strict approach to contractor non-compliances and certain zero-tolerance non-conformities, such as not being secured when working at heights.”
    The construction project has emphasised preventive measures, which encourages workers to identify and take action on unsafe practices, followed up by corrective action. So far, construction site staff at the Beihai Mill have made over 3 500 safety observations. Management also conducts regular safety inspections and audits to check that work is done according to Stora Enso’s safety standards. 525 safety inspections and 37 800 safety task assessments have been conducted since 2014.
    We stay in constant dialogue with contractors through regular safety meetings, and use rewards to help keep safety in focus, such as the monthly Safest Contractor Award. We have been training our operational staff since autumn 2013, over 2.5 years before mill start-up, and make sure all construction workers receive safety training. The site has its own high quality clinic with an ambulance, and 12 doctors from local hospitals have been trained to support the site in the event of an emergency.
    A project of this magnitude carries heightened safety risk, but as the Beihai Mill construction site proves, it is possible to create a strong safety culture even in challenging conditions.

  • A new CKB grade from Stora Enso


    Fax .

    As a top liner, CKB offers exceptional strength, cracking resistance and stable performance in gluing. Its high bulk provides a sleek surface, which helps to avoid the washboard effect when laminated on top of fluting materials.

    Stora Enso’s development of CKB has targeted maximum resource efficiency by introducing specific lightweighting technology throughout the entire CKB grammage range this autumn. Capacity increases at Stora Enso’s Skoghall Mill in Sweden secure availability. The entire CKB grammage range is now 175 to 380 g/m2. Thanks to lightweighting, CKB is more sustainable than before, as it takes less raw material to produce. CKB is a preferred packaging board for many wine, beer and beverage brand owners, who use it in cartons and multipacks.

    “We have high expectations for CKB to take a bigger market share as a top liner, as the board is now more sustainable and competitive thanks to its lower weight,” says Öystein Aksnes, Stora Enso’s General Packaging Segment Director.

    CKB is a multilayer kraft back board. A creative designer can use the brown back of the board to achieve a natural look and feel. Stora Enso offers CKB with several special coating options, which increase the designer’s choices. Excellent protection of goods, logistics efficiency and branding power are consistent with CKB. The board is also known for its excellent runnability in printing and converting processes.

  • Forest and land use


    Fax .

    ​​​​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. In 2015, 11% of our wood was 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 967 000 hectares globally, and 96% 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.

  • A passion for responsible business


    Fax .

    However, as Ambreen Waheed, the new Global Responsibility Director at Stora Enso’s joint venture company Bulleh Shah, knows, a vigorously growing market also holds potential risks of doing business. 
    “I am here to build an integrated responsibility culture,” Ambreen says.
    Challenges have always motivated Ambreen Waheed. Her new work as Global Responsibility Director at Stora Enso’s joint venture company in Pakistan is just another example of the ambition this woman seems to carry within.
    After 15 years of heading the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) thinkthank she founded herself, Ambreen decided to jump to yet another road less travelled and joined Bulleh Shah Packaging Limited, a Pakistani joint venture company of Stora Enso and Packaging Limited, in March 2013.
    Better discretion
    “We need to think outside the box to live in a responsible way on every level,” Ambreen says. “I am confident that we can develop good solutions; after all, we have a good team at Bulleh Shah. I also enjoy working with my colleagues from Stora Enso. We share a similar passion for work and for creating new things.”
    “Understanding a company’s operational environment is essential. Only then can one understand why certain actions take place. Understanding is a key to change,” Ambreen highlights.
    To illustrate this, Ambreen gives an example from Bulleh Shah’s value chain: “We use wheat straw as our raw material for packaging board. In collecting our raw material, we deal with numerous farmers growing wheat. There are instances where there’s a clear risk that children may be working on farms.” 
    Typically, a reaction in such a situation might be to consider abandoning the farmer, without understanding why a child is on the farm. Another typical reaction on seeing children at work would be for a company to support the opening of a school.
    “These reactions do not necessarily address the real reason such a situation exists. In all actions local social and cultural context needs to be taken into account. For instance, parents withdraw children from school seeing that the poor education doesn’t improve their child’s employment opportunities. This doesn’t mean children should work and not go to school. It means the best solution cannot be determined unless the context is also understood,” Ambreen says.
    For her, the best solution is cooperation that benefits all parties. And it also means promoting education.
    “This is a basis for the work we are doing.”​

  • Launching Building Systems by Stora Enso across Europe


    Fax .

    Stora Enso is transforming to an innovative provider of higher value products and solutions in the wood products business. To make this happen, Stora Enso promotes Building Systems based on building components like CLT and LVL.

    For the first time in the wood industry, there exist comprehensive guidelines and building system descriptions on how to build multi-storey houses from wood. Building Systems by Stora Enso have been launched during 2016 in six focus countries, i.e. the UK, Austria, Germany, Sweden, Finland, and France.

    Up to date, two systems have been launched, one for residential multi-storey buildings (based on prefabricated massive wood panels), and one for prefabricated residential modular buildings (based on prefabricated modules).

     “With these initiatives, Stora Enso is taking important steps to grow the wood construction market in Europe and to promote wood as the building material of the future,” says Mathieu Robert, Director for Focus Markets in Building Solutions.

    The nine launch events organized in six countries attracted altogether more than 700 attendees including, amongst others, real estate developers, architects, city planners, local government, building engineers, and construction companies. They all represent Wood Products’ target audiences either as decision makers or as key influencers.

    “We are now in a position to share our accumulated wood building expertise. However, we are not a construction company, nor are we the architects creating tomorrow´s houses. Thus, we need partners to team up with, partners who also believe they can make a difference. The launch events are a great platform for developing the partner ecosystem and spreading the good news,” Robert explains.

    Stora Enso will continue to launch new systems in addition to the first two ones, with launches planned for 2017.

  • Paper and board products


    Fax .

    ​Stora Enso will supply the games with everyday products and structures made from renewable raw materials, and take care of their recycling and reuse. All the used board collected for recycling at Lahti2017 will be utilised as raw material for new corrugated board products.
    The medal ceremony tray
    At the medal ceremonies, the medals will be brought to the stage on a tray that combines renewable Nordic raw materials with local design expertise.
    The tray has been designed by Stora Enso’s DesignStudio in Lahti. It is made of Stora Enso’s corrugated board, which is lightweight, renewable and recyclable, but still very robust.

    Containers for medals
    The medalists at Lahti2017 will receive beautiful and durable containers for their hard-earned medals. 
    The container has been designed by Stora Enso’s DesignStudio in Lahti. Its lid is made of very light and smooth luxury carton, with superior printing performance. 
    The lightweight but robust inner elements of the containers are made of thin micro-flute corrugated board. 

    Biocomposite stadium horns
    Stora Enso has produced a stadium horn made of biocomposite granules – a more sustainable option than plastic – to help spectators create a great sporting atmosphere and cheer athletes on. The horns will be handed out to spectators in Stora Enso’s stands at Lahti2017.
    50% of the biocomposite material consists of fine spruce fibre, and the rest is made up of polymers and additives. Biocomposites have a considerably lower fossil carbon footprint than plastics. 
    The horns’ biocomposite granules were produced at Stora Enso’s Hylte Mill in Sweden, where a new biocomposite production line is due to open in 2018. Biocomposite granules can be used as raw material for injection moulding and extrusion processes to make many kinds of products for consumers and industrial use. 
    These blowing horns reflect a Nordic tradition dating back to the 15th century, when horns were blown during preparations for battle.
    Lahti 2017 cups
    The board for the Lahti2017 coffee cups was made at Stora Enso’s Imatra Mills, and processed into cups by Huhtamäki in Hämeenlinna. 
    As many as 850 000 cups can be made from a single truckload of wood. At Stora Enso, we know the origin of the wood we use, which is harvested from sustainably managed forests and plantations. 
    Stora Enso’s cup board consists of three thin layers which are combined for optimum lightness and robustness. 
    A used cup is not trash – it is raw material for new products. Please return all used cups to board recycling points. 
    Mini snow gliders made of cartonboard
    Stora Enso’s liquid packaging board is suitable for many uses. Most typically, Stora Enso uses wood pulp to produce cartonboard that is shaped by Tetra Pak to make user-friendly milk cartons, which are then filled with milk by Valio.
    But for Lahti2017 the same cartonboard has also been used to make mini snow gliders that both kids and adults can enjoy. The cartonboard used on the gliders is produced at Stora Enso’s Imatra mills.
    The mini snow gliders will be handed out by Stora Enso, Tetra Pak and Valio, for use on the slopes in the play area. 
    After use, the glider can be placed in a recycling bin, and it will then be used to make new products. 

    Leaflets, office paper and book paper
    Lahti2017 is using a wide range of Stora Enso’s paper products, which are world-class in terms of quality and sustainability performance. 
    The new book 'Nordic Ski Worlds 1926-2017' has been printed on Lumi paper made at Stora Enso’s Oulu Mill. The new skiing-themed book by the popular Finnish humorous writer Tuomas Kyrö, 'Mielensäpahoittajan hiihtokirja', is printed on book paper produced at Stora Enso’s Anjala Mill.
    The office papers used at the Championships come from Stora Enso’s Veitsiluoto Mill in Kemi. Many of the other leaflets, posters and paper products visible in Lahti have been printed on Stora Enso paper.

    Recyclable waste bins
    The 1 000 indoor waste bins scattered around the Lahti2017 stadium area are made of corrugated board.
    This material is lightweight, renewable and recyclable, but also very robust. The bins were designed by Stora Enso’s DesignStudio in Lahti. 
    Making the bins themselves recyclable can further encourage users to recycle materials.

  • A focused strategy


    Fax .

    ​To start with, how has the Paper division done well even in light of market challenges?
    We have focused on developing our core assets and serving our key customers. While it is difficult to sell more when demand declines, you can always optimise your business in terms of sales and costs. We continuously look for ways to enhance our competitiveness through improved efficiency and processes throughout our operations.

    It has been hard work, year after year, and has resulted in paper machine closures and divestments. But it has also resulted in new ways of working or totally new business ideas, like producing biocomposite granules at Hylte Mill in Sweden. The Varkaus paper machine conversion in Finland is also a fantastic example of creating a new future for the mill, as well as improving our office paper business at Nymölla and Veitsiluoto by optimising product and customer portfolio.

    What are some specific accomplishments in 2016?
    In every business, it is the results that count in the end, and I am very proud of what we were able to achieve in the Paper division during 2016. We reduced our exposure to coated mechanical grades by selling Arapoti and Kabel mills, and successfully divested the Suzhou mill site in China. Although global paper demand continued to decline by 3%, we were able to keep our sales volumes stable. Our operational EBIT improved by EUR 134 million, supported by a EUR 40 million fixed cost reduction excluding restructuring impacts. Our cash generation was also at a record high level in the last quarter of 2016. Cash flow after investing activities to sales reached 11.8%, also well above our long-term target of 7%.

    How does the Paper division fit in the Stora Enso strategy?
    All companies have to grow. Stora Enso’s strategy is to grow in the wood products, packaging and biomaterials businesses. At the same time, we have our roots in paper, and that has provided a deep competence in forestry and processes that can be shared to advantage with all the businesses. The Paper division has been an important part of Stora Enso’s transformation for the past 10 years, in terms of revenue, people and competence. Additionally, the cash generation of our paper business has contributed greatly to investments in other areas where the company can grow.

    What are the Paper divisions’ underlying strengths?
    Of course we have access to fibre, competitive assets, and an efficient supply chain, but our biggest strength is our people – their competence and fighting spirit. Despite the challenges, we want to beat competition and are always ready to take the extra mile when we can see what it will bring. And all this plays an essential role in our long-term relationships we have with customers.

    What will drive the future of paper?
    On the demand side, the main drivers are the consumers’ media behavior, advertising expenditure, the ability of print to attract consumers to stores and websites, and ongoing innovation that combines print and digital in a creative way for maximal impact as well as the development of 3D printing.

    Further digitalisation will support the way we operate our mills and serve our customers, and most likely, the creation of new service concepts and business models.

    But paper will never disappear. We read our news on tablets and phones, work all day on screens, but at the end the day we might just want something on paper – a book, magazine or newspaper – to read with thought and relax. 

    What is the Paper division doing in terms of innovation?
    An open innovation initiative, launched in 2014, has resulted in a number of projects – we can concretely talk about the recent EUR 12 million investment at Hylte as a case in point. On the product side, we have launched several new products in past years especially in Super Calendered (SC) grades. In general, the trend is towards bulkier and lighter paper grades. At our Sachsen unit, we are investing in a brighter FlyoBrite especially for retail end-use. Innovation can also be seen in the form of supply chain processes and efficiency, e-commerce and new services to improve ways of working. Additionally, new opportunities to lower raw material consumption, especially in energy, are continuously being explored.

    Beyond our own operations, our cooperation with Volvo Cars in Ghent, Belgium serves as a great example for innovation and sustainability. Last November, Stora Enso and Volvo Cars opened a new hot water pipeline between our manufacturing sites. The four-kilometre pipeline takes hot water that is heated using renewable energy from our Langerbrugge paper mill to the Volvo plant, where it is used to heat buildings and paint booths. This brings a reduction of 40% in annual CO2 emissions at the Volvo plant.

    What part does paper play in the bioeconomy? 
    In my view, a circular, climate-friendly bioeconomy is one in which renewable raw materials and low fossil or fossil-free energy are efficiently used to manufacture recyclable products. The forest industry, and paper as one of its core products, obviously has a fundamental role in this, underlined by sustainable forest and land management and responsible resource use, as well as in creating value from the recycling of products.

    An appropriate response to the environmental challenges our planet is facing must take the full life-cycle of a product into account. 90% of our own paper brands are covered by one or more recognised ecolabels, including the EU Ecolabel, the Nordic Swan and the Blue Angel. For this, our products have to comply with strict ecological criteria, covering every stage of their life-cycle: from the extraction of raw materials to production right through to product use and disposal. At every point of the product life-cycle, the best decisions for the environment should be made, while providing customers high-performance products.

  • Stora Enso becomes Partner of World Green Building Council's Europe Regional Network


    Fax .

    Stora Enso's division Wood Products has today become an official Regional Partner of the World Green Building Council's Europe Regional Network.

    Europe's largest supplier of wooden construction material and Europe's largest sustainable building network today entered into a partnership that is aimed at supporting the mainstreaming of sustainable building practices across the region.

    WorldGBC's Europe Regional Network represents a community of 24 Green Building Councils (GBCs), seven Regional Partners and over 5,000 company members who cooperate closely to support the growth of the sustainable building movement in Europe.

    James Drinkwater, Regional Director of WorldGBC's Europe Regional Network, said: "This year will be a big year for sustainable building in Europe. The summer will see the release of the EU's first policy aimed at moving towards a 'common language' for sustainable building assessment and shifting our sector towards a circular approach.

    "We are therefore very happy to be welcoming Stora Enso to our Regional Partnership – their leadership and expertise will significantly strengthen our work to ensure Europe's building sector is moving towards lifecycle thinking and the circular economy."

    Petri Perttula, Head of Building Solutions at Stora Enso, said: "We are convinced that our versatile solutions are key to the European Union's drive for circular economy. Our offering helps in reducing the carbon footprint of the building industry. This is one of the reasons why we have recently introduced a set of publicly available manuals and toolsets for project stakeholders to more easily consider massive wood based construction methods from the early stages of project definition."

    Anna-Liisa Myllynen, SVP Sustainability for Stora Enso Wood Products, added: "We are proud to be partnering with the World Green Building Council. We are delighted by the prospect of working with the WorldGBC, their partner network and the national Green Building Councils in Europe to increase the uptake of sustainable building solutions."

    The owners of or other holders of rights over the shares that were in this joint book-entry account were entitled to claim from the sale an amount proportional to their shares. The amount was paid from the net sale proceeds deposited with the Provincial State Office of Southern Finland against share certificates or any other title documents. The right to claim from the deposited funds expired after ten years, 14 June 2012. For more information, please contact Investor Relations team or financial communications.
