Wooden block

Building for sustainability and well-being

Cut your carbon emissions by up to 70% compared to concrete and steel1.

You want to make your next building project a sustainable forerunner. Let’s talk. At Stora Enso, we provide wood-based solutions to help you build:

What’s more, it’s been proven that people who live and work in buildings made of wood feel better in their surroundings. Office workers are more productive, students are calmer and more creative and residents sleep better. With more than 20 000 projects to date, we can help you make the switch to sustainable building materials.

Energy efficient buildings

Massive-engineered wooden elements like CLT, LVL and rib panels enable sustainable architecture in a cost-competitive, energy-efficient and time-efficient way. Wood is lighter than traditional materials and the elements arrive pre-fabricated so there are less and lighter transport loads to the building site and less work required when they get there.

Sylva™ by Stora Enso – Find the right solution for every application

Sylva™ by Stora Enso is Stora Enso’s range of prefabricated wood-based products for low-carbon buildings. The Sylva kit includes everything needed to create a modern, sustainable wood structure.

Our custom-made elements, (Sylva Walls, Sylva Floors and Roofs, Sylva Stairs and Sylva Beams and Columns) optimise the use of sustainable wood to suit any application and requirement. And of course, we ensure your delivery arrives on-site ready to install, just-in-time (JIT).

Sylva™ by Stora Enso is currently only available in Europe and Australia.

New innovations on the way

We’re also working on bio-based alternatives to eventually replace traditional binders. Let’s cut your embodied emissions radically and make your next building project healthy and sustainable.
