Targets: Increase electricity generation, reduce consumption

Nearly all of our electricity is generated from renewable fuels. The target is to reduce our electricity and heating consumption by at least 10 percent by 2025, compared with 2015 levels. In addition, our annual electricity generation will exceed our electricity consumption (it already does). To achieve our targets, we are investing in increased and optimised generation in order to reduce our use of energy and chemicals, for example.

This is where we are now

Use of electricity and heating

In 2017, electricity and heating consumption for pulp decreased 3 percent (electricity) and 6 percent (heating). For sawn timber electricity consumption was unchanged and heating consumption decreased 6 percent. Both compared with 2015.

Electricity generation and use

In 2017, our electricity generation exceeded our consumption, and net deliveries were 335 GWh.
