Stora Enso supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.


How we address the SDGs

In 2015, the United Nations defined a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that address social and economic development issues on a global scale, each with their own set of related targets. All sectors of society, including businesses, are encouraged to work and collaborate towards these vital goals. For business to deliver on the goals, they must be aligned with company agendas and strategies.

Stora Enso supports all 17 SDGs, but we have identified three strategic goals that our business has the most impact on.


How we contribute to SDG 12:

  • We use renewable materials.
  • We are part of the bioeconomy and circular economy.
  • We constantly innovate to improve resource and material efficiency.

How we contribute to SDG 13:

  • Renewable materials are an important part of the carbon cycle. They grow back and keep absorbing carbon dioxide and storing carbon.
  • We identify and analyse carbon risks and opportunities to establish their financial and non-financial impacts, the likelihood of their occurrence, and their root causes.
  • As the first in our industry, we set ambitious science-based targets for reducing our greenhouse gas emissions in 2017.

How we contribute to SDG 15:

  • 100% of our main raw material, wood, comes from sustainably managed forests that grow back.
  • We safeguard forest biodiversity.
