Forest raw material
The forest is a resource that meets many needs. Our production units transform about 10 million cubic metres of wood raw material into packaging material every year. Managing the forest affects it in different ways.
- Changing the carbon balance. Harvesting increases the breakdown of the biomaterial in the soil, which increases emissions. When new trees start to grow, they bind carbon dioxide in again, plus more besides
- Taking into account the way the forest is a social and cultural asset as an area for recreation
- The forest is home to many species of fungi, flora and fauna, some of which are affected positively, others negatively
We carry out sustainable forestry taking into account biodiversity and the forest’s capacity to bind carbon. We also work actively to increase the proportion of certified privately owned forest in Sweden.
