Did you know that young forests absorb carbon dioxide when they grow?

Carbon circulates endlessly between the atmosphere, growing trees, and wood-based products. Young forests absorb carbon dioxide when they grow and old forests release it as they decay. Carbon is stored in forest products until they decay or are burned at the end of their life – releasing the carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere. Growing forests reabsorb carbon dioxide from the air.

Stora Enso’s approach to responsible forest and tree plantation management takes into account the economic, social, and environmental aspects of sustainability. Compliance with national legislation and regulatory obligations is only the starting point for our work. We actively support and implement voluntary forest conservation and restoration measures on lands owned, leased, and managed by Stora Enso, and in other areas where we purchase wood.

We care a great deal for the wellbeing of the ”natural habitat” of Multicopy and practice sustainable forest management by replanting 2–3 trees for each one cut down.
