Our ambitions are higher than climate-neutral. Fossil-free and climate-positive operations are at the top of our agenda. And this is where forests play a crucial role.
Forests are important for people, and always have been. If we want to continue to benefit from our forests and everything they have to offer, we have to use them sustainably and apply a long-term approach.
Everything can be smarter and more resource-efficient. This is a never-ending process. But our utilisation of raw material from the forest is becoming more and more efficient.
We want to be a responsible employer. People should feel safe and secure at work.
Sustainability permeates all Södra’s operations, from seed to finished product. We have a unique resource – the wood from our members’ responsibly-managed forests. All the wood that we use is traceable and all the pulps in our broad product portfolio are available as PEFC™ or FSC® certified.
As pressure on the world’s finite resources continues to intensify, we face a growing problem: How do we meet the needs of consumers and protect our planet at the same time? At Södra it’s a question close to our hearts because our passion in life, and the source of everything we do, is the world’s ultimate sustainable material - wood.
Over the past 20 years, conservation considerations in forestry have increased in the form of more trees being retained for biodiversity, a higher percentage of hardwood forest and the creation of more high stumps. Comprehensive efforts with nature conservation have also promoted forest bird populations.
Committed and motivated employees. That is what’s driving us forward. Together with our employees, we are taking responsibility for becoming a next-generation forest company. This year, we have been recognised as Sweden’s most attractive workplace which, of course, makes us very proud.
