53,060 reasons to be an extra proud forest owner

Today, March 21, is UN International Forest Day. It’s a day to focus on the importance of using and conserving the world's forests in the most sustainable way possible.

At Södra, we have 53,060 reasons to be extra proud of the contribution we make to this cause every day.

Each of our 53,060 reasons is a Södra member. In 2021, 139 new forest-owning members joined Södra and became part of our cooperative to take responsibility for sustainable forestry in southern Sweden. By joining our growing cooperative, individual members are stronger together and can work for ever-better family forestry. The profitability of members forest estates, family forestry and raw material  processing have been the core of Södra's operations since the beginning.

"I am proud to have bought my forest"

Take Södra member Camilla Logarn. A member since 1991, her forest estate is a few miles south of Växjö. Her forest is a source of pride.

“I am proud to have bought my forest and to be part of a sustainable company that is based on renewable products, says Camilla.”

70 years from planting to felling

For Camilla, the other members and Södra, responsible, sustainable forestry comes naturally. Our members share the common aim to hand over something to the next generation that will have even greater value than today. Not just economically, but also in terms of nature, culture and social values. Our business model not only creates long-term and sustainable values for our 53,060 members, but also for Sweden.

The forest plays an important role in our transition to a bioeconomy. The growth in Södra's members' forests and the products we manufacture have a positive effect on the climate, corresponding to 20 percent of Sweden's total carbon dioxide emissions.

The journey from planting a seedling to harvesting a tree takes 70 years. It gives us plenty of time to plan for its use and replanting. We call this sustainability.
