Holmen conducts a continuous dialogue with its stakeholders, which raises the Group’s awareness of what the stakeholders expect from it – and vice-versa. This in turn represents an important basis from which to identify strengths and weaknesses and enhance sustainability efforts.
Holmen’s operations are of great signifcance to employment in the places where the company is active. The closures as well as investments that have been made in recent years also have consequences for the rest of the labour market in the affected communities.
The forests also constitute signifcant social assets. A large number of people enjoy them in their leisure time. All Sweden’s forests are open to the general public under the right of common access.
