Oberstdorf ski competition

Are you prepared for Oberstdorf?

Stora Enso is the presenting sponsor of Nordic World Ski Championships 2021 in Oberstdorf, Germany, 23 February–7 March. The athletes are all set – prepared to wax on and off to optimise their grip and gliss. Are you properly prepared to enjoy the world-class entertainment from your living room sofa?

Here at Stora Enso we are thrilled to once more be a part of the FIS-event. 2021 marks the fourth time that we are presenting sponsor of the Nordic World Ski Championships, and, there will be a fifth and sixth time as well, in Planica 2023 and Trondheim 2025.

 

A WORLD-CLASS SUSTAINABLE EVENT

Stora Enso values the chance to make use of our materials expertise to contribute to a more sustainable event. The onsite event will not be as usual in these unique times, but we have found ways to make a difference for the planet: reducing plastic consumption by using more climate-friendly paper cups, medal boxes made from packaging board, and medal podiums made from wood. As Annica Bresky, President and CEO of Stora Enso puts it:
“Our renewable products made of wood give us the opportunity to contribute to making these world-class sustainable events.”
