As part of our sustainability ambition, Stora Enso is committed to achieving a net positive impact on biodiversity in our own forests and plantations by 2050 through active biodiversity management.

Working towards this net-positive goal, we have:

  • Developed and initiated a set of actions towards 2030 to improve biodiversity on species, habitat and landscape levels in our own forests and with private forest owners.
  • Begun to work within and beyond the forest sector to improve biodiversity, through knowledge-sharing and active participation in formulating new policies and standards.


 At Stora Enso, we are determined to place biodiversity at the top of the forest management agenda. We want to become industry leaders in biodiversity, and this mindset leads how we manage our forests. We use our own forest in Sweden as a development platform for enhancing biodiversity. Our work will be supported by a science-based programme for monitoring and continuous research and development.

A wide set of actions to improve biodiversity by 2030 have been developed and set into motion. A holistic view on biodiversity looks at it from the landscape, habitat and species level. All of these are tightly interlinked.

Sustainable forest and plantation management secures the long-term availability of wood. Our forests grow more than they are harvested, and biodiversity is promoted as an integral part of our daily operations.

Digitalisation, remote sensing technology, and artificial intelligence enable us to take a step forward in the way we operate in forests, in the wood supply chain and in the protection and restoration of biodiversity. We encourage our partners to move in the same direction.
