Innovation plays a key role in our work to respond to customer and end-consumer demand for a more sustainable future, with solutions that reduce carbon footprint, promote circularity and enhance biodiversity.
Through innovation, research and collaboration, Stora Enso focuses on developing new and existing products as well as improving processes and supply chain efficiency and resilience. In all our businesses and markets, we work closely with customers to understand their strategies and devise solutions to support a competitive advantage and meet sustainability targets. Our work is underpinned by our expertise in wood and fiber-based renewable materials, industrial processes, supply chain operations, service concepts and importantly sustainable forestry.
In the face of ever-increasing global challenges, businesses, governments, institutions and society are reevaluating how resources are used, how communities and cities are built and maintained, how businesses operate, and how goods are produced and transported. Our sustainability framework provides a long-term direction that steers our innovation efforts – we want to contribute proactively to solving customer and stakeholder issues and deliver value, looking at how positive sustainability impacts can be accelerated.
Building on collaboration
Innovation cannot happen in isolation. Stora Enso welcomes partnership and collaboration as we work across the value chain with customers, suppliers, research and academic institutions and start-ups.
In the Nordics, academic partnerships include Aalto University, Chalmers University of Technology, the Royal Institute of Technology and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, giving us access to the research that will help to shape the fiber and forest-based industries. The Combient Foundry is the our interface towards the global start-up community through which we gather innovative proposals regarding digitalization and materials.
We are active in a number of national, European and trade associations, and with other industry partners, focused on key topics such as circular bioeconomy, forestry agendas, sustainable packaging, recycling and collection, textiles, green building, bio-binders and renewable electrification.
Camfil initiated a large sustainability project. With a strong will to deliver real progress, nothing was left behind and making changes to the corrugated box transporting their products was one important part. Together with Stora Enso they changed from a white to a brown box, saving 50 tonnes of CO2 emissions yearly.
