The Stora Enso Group has some 29 000 employees in more than 35 countries worldwide, and is a publicly traded company listed in Helsinki and Stockholm. Our customers include publishers, printing houses and paper merchants, as well as the packaging, joinery and construction industries.
Our annual production capacity is 5.4 million tonnes of chemical pulp, 11.7 million tonnes of paper and board, 1.3 billion square metres of corrugated packaging and 5.6 million cubic metres of sawn wood products, including 2.9 million cubic metres of value-added products. Our sales in 2013 were EUR 10.5 billion, with an operational EBIT of EUR 578 million.
Stora Enso uses and develops its expertise in renewable materials to meet the needs of its customers and many of today’s global raw material challenges. Our products provide a climate-friendly alternative to many products made from competing non-renewable materials, and have a smaller carbon footprint. Our solutions based on wood therefore have wide-reaching benefits for us as a business, for people and for the planet. Being responsible – doing good for the people and the planet – underpins our thinking and our approach to every aspect of doing business.
Stora Enso is transforming itself into a value-creating renewable materials company focusing on growth markets. We will focus on growth markets in Asia and Latin America through fibre-based packaging, plantation-based pulp, innovations in biomaterials, competitive paper grades and sustainable building solutions. Fibre-based packaging offers steady long-term growth in most segments and has vast innovation potential, offering sustainable new solutions for our customers. Plantation-based pulp allows us to secure low-cost fibre for production. Innovations in biomaterials offer scalable concepts for new markets.
