As a service to our clients, the Paper Division has developed an interactive self-learning resource on the topic of sustainability – a digital academy – that was launched in early 2021.
Stora Enso is a major player in making sure the future will be fossil free and renewable. Sustainable thinking is in the company’s DNA, but all our clients didn’t have access to the information on how to build a more sustainable business. We wanted to change that – help enhance understanding of the environmental issues for companies and let people in on Stora Enso’s practices in this area. A digital, interactive, platform for competence building on sustainability matters.
The academy will focus on three topics:
- sustainable raw materials
- sustainable processes
- sustainable productions
Understanding is key
Even though this platform is created with Stora Enso’s clients in mind – it’s accessible to anyone interested in getting a better understanding of forestry and wood sourcing, land use, biodiversity, and chain of custody. Later this year, a second module focusing on climate change will be released.
“We launched the Academy earlier this year as we had noticed an increasing number of our customers had questions about what exactly sustainability means.” says Magnus Deinzer, Senior Manager Sustainable Raw Materials, of Stora Enso’s Paper Division.

Humans’ urge to communicate has always been strong – and with the evolution of paper, the written form of communicating opened a whole new world of efficiency, suddenly dismantling geographical boundaries. Naturally, the history of papermaking is closely connected to societal, industrial, and cultural events.
Eco-awareness and higher demands on sustainability features among customers tend to lead to good things. One current example is the initiated project at Stora Enso to certify all paper pulp grades as compostable, to helps consumers make more eco-friendly choices.
In 2021, the Multicopy production base in Nymölla mill took a step further in the fossil free journey, with Stora Enso entering a partnership with energy company Gasum. We had a talk with Erik Woode, Director, Project Development & Execution, at Gasum, to get a status update after one year of turning residue water from production into fossil free fuel.
