Renewable materials rule!

As The renewable materials company, Stora Enso is leading the way towards a fossil-free future. Office paper is just one out of many product areas where we are making a difference by offering sustainable premium products.

Stora Enso’s solutions are found in segments such as building, retail, food and beverages, manufacturing, publishing, pharmaceutical, hygiene and textiles. In many cases, Stora Enso provides low-carbon alternatives to products made from fossil-based materials. 

And the choice of raw materials, for projects in all sizes, matter a great deal when it comes to drastically reducing carbon emissions. Stora Enso recently published an article defining how we can help combat climate change by choosing renewable materials:

1. Trees grow back and absorb carbon dioxide while growing.

2. You can choose products that store carbon.

3. Don’t settle for fossil-based products when products with a lower carbon impact already exist.

4. The more we choose renewable materials, the bigger the impact. Industries that matter should use materials that matter.
