Print and Paper Academy

Print & Paper Academy - Knowledge brings us closer and takes us further

If you ask us, there is no such thing as too much knowledge and understanding. And it is rather amazing to reflect upon the immense positive effect that shared understanding has on communication. It helps people see new opportunities and make educated decisions in daily operations.

Stora Enso has a unique expertise in sustainability as well as in pulp and paper making. To share our vast knowledge, we have created the Print & Paper Academy. The academy-program covers the full value chain with five modules. Our participants are suppliers, clients and employees, thus having various knowledge levels when we start out.

Sharing is caring

Martin Gercke, Vice President of Technical Sales and responsible for the Paper & Print Academy, describes its purpose and benefits:

– The Print & Paper Academy is all about transferring relevant paper and printing know-how to customers and other stakeholders. Stora Enso expertise covers all aspects, from the forest and its sustainability, to paper making and paper handling, through to almost any kind of converting process. We try to group different types of customers with Stora Enso people from different functions. It is unbelievable how the understanding between us is increased by this kind of exercises. Simply put, it makes life easier when talking to each other and dealing with different matters.

Print & Paper at Multicopy and Nymölla Mill

At Nymölla Mill we host the Print & Paper Academy for Multicopy now in its fifth year. The program is a mix of theory, forest walks in the “woods in our hoods” and mill tours that certainly provides a broad perspective on the production of sustainable office paper and expert knowledge on paper as a product. A large part is reserved to hands on activities like working on real case studies. As a bonus the participants get to know each other and enjoy the splendid settings and the gastronomy of Bäckaskog Castle, where the “Acadamy members” are accommodated.

The next Academy-session in Nymölla is planned to take place 23–24 September 2020*. Are you interested in participating?

Responsible forestry

Some people and organizations argue that old forests are more sustainable than new ones, no matter how responsible the forestry and harvesting. That any company who uses wood for its products is causing a major negative impact on our climate – when it comes to reduction of carbon emissions and the biodiversity of our forests. But it’s not a black and white question. As a matter of fact, there are several upsides to harvesting and managing forests to get a hold of the remarkable, renewable raw material called wood.

TreeToTextile: Yet a unique plant at Nymölla Mill

Alongside Gasum’s biogas plant at Nymölla mill, another sustainable initiative is in the making. All over the world, the demand for sustainable textile fibers is growing and the new facility is a demonstration plant for TreeToTextile, owned by Stora Enso, H&M Group, Inter IKEA Group, and LSCS Invest.

An icon that is anything but symbolic

Gasum’s biogas plant at Nymölla Mill is now producing liquefied biogas (LBG) at full speed. We created an icon that communicates the benefits in a clear way; how we manage to, not only make use of residue from the process of turning wood into paper, but also make way for a fossil free future.
