Targets: Fossil-free

We have set clear targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon storage. These are Group-wide targets with the same status as our financial targets. To promote the storage of even more carbon, we are committed to sustainable forestry and continued forest growth. Our own production is virtually fossil-free. Most of the energy we use is renewable, and generated from forest products. The target for our production is to be totally fossil-free by 2020. When it comes to transport, the challenge is greater. Since transport currently accounts for most of our greenhouse gas emissions, the target here is to be totally fossil-free by 2030. This will be achieved by optimising our logistics and using green fuels.

This is where we are now

Forest growth

In 2017, our rate of forest growth was 6.9 m³fo/ha, up 5 percent compared with 2015.


In 2017, CO2 emissions from fossil fuels used for our transport amounted to 191,000 tonnes, down 1 percent compared with 2015.


In 2017, CO2 emissions from fossil-fuel combustion in our production amounted to 80,000 tonnes, down 9 percent compared with 2015.
