Do you want to know more about Stora Enso?
Part of the global bioeconomy, Stora Enso is a business-to-business company and a leading provider of renewable products in packaging, biomaterials, and wooden construction, and one of the largest private forest owners in the world. Sustainability is integral in Stora Enso’s business strategy, it is at the core of what we do. We publish a combined Annual Report, covering our strategy, financials, sustainability reporting, corporate governance and remuneration.
2023 was a challenging year for the whole industry, with lower demand and volumes in general. During the year, we experienced a decline with a speed and magnitude not seen for a couple of decades, with deteriorating market conditions and price pressure for all segments.
Our strategy yielded significant progress in 2023. We began the year by discontinuing our Paper division, which had been in a market-related structural decline for many years. Instead, we focused on growing in our key areas, most notably renewable packaging, our largest growth area. In January, we completed the acquisition of De Jong Packaging Group, a leading corrugated packaging producer in the Netherlands, which reinforced our position in West Europe. Furthermore, we continued converting a paper line into growing consumer board segments at our Oulu production site in Finland, with production set to commence in early 2025.
