We only use wood from sustainable sources
Wood is our most important raw material. Our continued business success relies upon the availability of this renewable resource. It is in our interest both as a forest industry company and as responsible citizens to keep forests healthy and productive through sustainable forest management.
We always consider economic, social and environmental factors in sustainable management of forests and plantations. We support forest certification everywhere we operate. We never convert natural forests into plantations. We respect biodiversity. We respect the rights of people in and around forests and plantations.
Origin of wood
We trace 100% of our wood to ensure it comes from legal and acceptable sources. We always know where the wood we use comes from.
We procure most of our wood from private forest owners, state forests and companies in Finland, Sweden, the Baltic states, Continental Europe and Russia. Around 6% of our wood is from tree plantations in the Southern Hemisphere.
Learn about Nordic forests, hear what a forest owner says about sustainable forest management, learn to build a sustainable tree plantation and see and hear the story of Veracel, a benchmark on sustainable plantation management in Brazil on our Global Responsibility website.
