As the renewable materials company, Stora Enso is constantly aiming to push the boundaries of sustainability. Sometimes, finding the most innovative sustainable solutions calls for partnering with like-minded experts.To help you reach green targets and decrease your footprint, we have partnered with energy company Gasum to establish a biogas plant at Nymölla paper mill in Sweden. The plant, that is built and operated by Gasum, is converting residue from the mill’s process water into liquefied biogas (LBG) – a renewable fuel, mainly used for heavy-duty vehicles. The gas from this plant will fuel more than 200 average long-haul lorries for a whole year, while reducing their greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% compared to diesel.
You might think that a paper producing company would look upon digitalisation as a threat. There sure has been much talk about “digital vs print” the last decade. In Stora Enso’s case, that assumption is as wrong as can be. We see the bigger picture. Digital solutions are helping us make the most out of every tree we use, and they are taking us closer to the goal of a safer and more efficient industry.
As the renewable materials company, Stora Enso is leading the way towards a fossil free future. Sustainability is at our very core and in every part of our business. The workplace environment is one important area. Because no company, no matter how green and clean, is truly sustainable if it fails to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of its employees.
Jonathan Bakewell has been at Stora Enso for 34 years. He quite often gets questions like “What’s the biggest difference since you started out?” and “Was it better in the past?” and yes, he also gets a few “three decades at the same company, what’s wrong with you?!” However, Jonathan is still glad to be a part of this company’s mission to lead the way towards a fossil free future. Proud and inspired after all this time. That says a lot, doesn’t it? This is his Stora Enso-story and some thoughts on the major changes in our business area since 1987.
