Always choose sustainable

Sustainability is at the heart of our operations, from seed to finished product. Everything we produce originates from the exceptional, renewable resource that is the forest. As a cooperative of 52,000 forest owners in southern Sweden, we know exactly where our wood comes from, because our members own it.

About our members

Many of our members are sixth or seventh-generation foresters who regard themselves as custodians of their estates, nurturing them to pass on to the next generation. We are fully committed to sustainable forestry and sustainable forest management.

Forest to end product

From the forest to the end product, we are careful to control every step of our processes to ensure minimal environmental impact. We minimise water consumption, our mills’ efficient energy systems deliver electricity, district heating and biofuel to their local municipalities, and in 2020, we started up the world’s first commercial biomethanol plant (fossil-free fuel).

The forest products industry 

The forest products industry is important for the global transition to a sustainable bioeconomy and we can now deliver more sustainable products than ever before. From clothing and smart food packaging to filters and vehicle fuels, our journey to find more sustainable solutions for the future has only just begun.
