Europe’s forest fibre industry is good for the planet, good for the people and good for the European economy.

We can make the 2050 climate neutrality target a reality while making sure that forests keep growing, absorbing CO2 and protecting biodiversity.

Europe's wood fibre industry is good for the planet, good for the people and good for the European economy.
We can make the 2050 climate neutrality target a reality while making sure that forests keep growing, absorbing CO2 and protecting biodiversity.
We take 806 million tons of CO2 out of the atmosphere every year while bringing employment to Europe and especially rural areas.
We aim to play a central role in satisfying the needs of the European citizens by offering solutions that contribute to a sustainable lifestyle.
All the wood we use comes from legal sources and from responsibly managed forests. For every tree harvested, 3-4 new ones are planted. Renewable, recyclable and many times reusable, wood fibre-based products make for an innovative alternative to fossil-based materials. We're ready to challenge misconceptions about Europe's wood fibre industry. Are you?

Renewable resources: planting trees & preserving biodiversity

European forests are home for thousands of bird, mammal, insect & plant species. Climate change is threatening the forest biodiversity that is vital for our planet's ecosystems. Sustainable forest management preserves biodiversity. Europe's wood fibre industry contributes to sustainable forest management: we are planting trees and only use wood from controlled sources.

Decarbonising: making climate neutrality happen

The European forestry sector is helping to solve the global climate challenge. Our positive climate impact is equivalent to 20% of the EU's fossil emissions each year. Net sinks in forests & forest products store 447 million tons of CO2.

We've prevented 410 million tons of carbon emissions by substituting fossil-based materials and fossil energy. And we've reduced our CO2 emissions by -50% in three decades to 51 million tons.

Wood fiber-based products

A fossil-free world: innovative low-carbon alternatives

Europe's woodfibre industry can help you revolutionize while you decarbonize. Wood fibre-based products are innovative and have a greater positive climate impact than fossil-based materials. Wood fibre-based alternatives are replacing plastics in packaging. Wood-based fibres are replacing cotton and fossil-based textiles to make sustainable clothing a reality. And our scientists are continuously developing new bio-products.

Circularity

Recyclable & reusable: supporting the circular economy

We support circular economy by using all parts of the trees, produce energy while we produce pulp and circulate water and chemicals in our operations.

The European forestry sector is a recycling champion: Europe's 72% paper recycling rates are the highest in the world and 85% of European packaging board is recycled. In total, we recycle 49 million tonnes of paper and board products each year. Recycled wood fibre can be reused up to seven times with recycled textile fibre sometimes even stronger than the original.
