Biodiversity

Biodiversity is the variety of plant and animal life on our planet. To solve our biodiversity crisis, companies must commit to spending resources on creating space for plants and animals to thrive. 

At Stora Enso, we have been working with active biodiversity measures for decades, but are now speeding up our efforts to not only reduce harm, but to leave ecosystems better than we found them.

Sustainable forest management safeguards forest health and protects biodiversity

Biodiversity is fundamental to both the planet and people; it provides functioning ecosystems that supply oxygen, clean air, water and food. Globally, biodiversity has been decreasing for decades, and more action is needed to reverse this development.

As a renewable natural resource, wood is a favourable alternative to fossil-based and other non-renewable materials. Growing trees absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and, together with wood-based products, act as carbon storage.

Climate change can change patterns of temperature, wind, and rainfall. Well-managed forests can make entire ecosystems more resilient to negative impacts of climate change, and benefit from positive ones. Forest health and growth must be ensured by managing forests sustainably throughout the forest life cycle.

At Stora Enso, biodiversity management is an integral part of our forest management practices. We’re interested in more than just mitigating biodiversity loss. We want to create biodiversity gain. Our goal is to enhance biodiversity and create a net-positive impact in our own forests and plantations by 2050.
