Sustainable forest and plantation management is essential for Stora Enso in securing long-term availability of wood – our most important renewable raw material.

Stora Enso owns forest lands in Sweden, and has biological assets also in Finland, Brazil, Uruguay and China through subsidiaries, joint operations and indirectly through equity accounted investments.

Today, Stora Enso is one of the largest private forest owners in the world with forest assets valued at more than EUR 7 billion (land and biological assets) in 2020. Globally, Stora Enso owns or manages lands covering a total area of more than 2.0 million hectares. About 30% of the Group’s wood raw material needs are covered from its own sources or long-term supply agreements.
