The forests are the lungs of our planet. They inhale carbon dioxide and exhale life sustaining oxygen. In times of climate change challenges, we think sustainably managed, consistently growing forest has a key role to play in the necessary transition to an economy based on renewable resources.
Managing our own forest in the most sustainable way combined with structured purchasing processes means we have control throughout our value chain. From seeds collected in our own orchards, seedlings grown at our own nurseries and trees from sustainably managed forests through to paperboard at the end of a cycle up to 100 years long. It means we can take care, from seed to paperboard.
The forest is not simply a source of raw material. It houses ecological, social and cultural values that we think can be both protected and enhanced through responsible forest management. We truly believe that the forest we manage is a thing of beauty.
Our forest is open to all, and made even more accessible through the construction of forest roads and forest management activities such as thinning. We encourage everybody to take advantage of its richness.
Holmen's path to sustainable forest management.
Both our mills use the forest as the primary source of energy, essentially extracting solar energy stored in the wood during photosynthesis.
In every investment decision we make we consider the impact it will have on our environmental, social and financial performance.
Our long term approach and sustainable profit levels provide the foundation for continuing to be a responsible part of society.
