Stora Enso is a global paper, packaging and forest products company producing newsprint and book paper, magazine paper, fine paper, consumer board, industrial packaging and wood products. The Group has 32 000 employees and 85 production facilities 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.
The annual production capacity is 12.7 million tonnes of paper and board, 1.5 billion square metres of corrugated packaging and 6.9 million cubic metres of sawn wood products, including 3.2 million cubic metres of value-added products.
The sales were EUR 11.0 billion, with an operating profit of EUR 388.4 million. Stora Enso’s company mission is to use and develop its expertise in wood to meet the needs of its customers and many of today’s global raw materials challenges. Wood is a renewable resource with a wide range of commercial applications. The products provide a climate-friendly alternative to many products made from competing non-renewable materials, and have a smaller carbon footprint.
The solutions based on wood therefore have wide-reaching benefits for us as a business, a people and a planet. Stora Enso will focus more on new growth markets in China, Latin America and Russia, and fibre-based packaging, plantation-based pulp and selected paper grades. Fibre-based packaging offers steady long-term growth in most segments and has vast innovation opportunities, offering sustainable new solutions for our customers. Plantation-based pulp allows us to secure low-cost fibre for production.
