In order for us to continue to deliver sustainable products and services of public benefit, we must be a reliable partner and create climate-smart solutions. Sustainability is crucial to our competitiveness. Therefore, we have set ambitious and concrete sustainability goals within four main areas.

For one thing we can state for years to come: We will contribute to a sustainable future in wood.

    Why do we fell trees?

    According to the UN Climate Panel, in order to successfully limit global temperature rises to less than 2 degrees Celsius by 2100, we must bind more carbon than we release. We can do this by “capturing” greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and storing them underground or by practising active forestry and using more wood in construction.

  • Climate-smart building products come from trees

    Wood is a renewable and climate-smart material that fits perfectly in both large and small construction projects. Also, the Norwegian and Swedish forests are full of timber. We have decided to build a sustainable future from wood.
