Climate change and resource scarcity affect the environment and societies as a whole, and the growing population continues to increase the pressure to maximise efficient use of raw materials. Circularity of materials is a key success factor for navigating sustainable profitable growth within the planetary boundaries.
In 2022, 96% of our total process material use was renewable.
We apply precautionary management actions to mitigate and remedy potential adverse impacts on environment. Local environmental stewardship at the mills, including water and energy management and resource efficiency, is supported by third-party ISO 14001-certified environmental management systems. This ensures continuous improvements in the most prioritised environmental issues, including remediation when necessary. All Stora Enso’s sawmills, corrugated packaging units, and board, pulp and paper mills are certified to the ISO 14001 environmental management system.
Our target is to maintain process residuals utilisation rate level of at least 98%.
Reuse and recycle materials to minimise waste and to ensure efficient use of resources
Maximise the value of material streams through circular material flows
Convert existing material side-streams to new products, for example, lignin, to generate circular revenues
Beneficial use of process residuals in the value chain
