Skyscrapers made from wood
By 2050 the world’s population is expected to soar to almost 10 billion people and two-thirds of us will live in cities. Space will be at a premium. High-rise offers a solution. But concrete and steel – the materials we currently use to build high – have a large carbon footprint. Wooden skyscrapers are an ambitious and innovative solution to the problems posed by urbanisation. Not only are they faster to build, they also have smaller carbon footprints than high-rises made of concrete and steel.
Choose the climate, choose renewable materials
Products made from renewable materials are a part of the solution to global warming. Your choice matters.
International House Sydney, Australia
This video presents impressions of International House Sydney, an office building constructed largely from Stora Enso CLT. The multi-storey structure is situated directly next to the port in the Barangaroo urban development area.
Winter Cabin Mount Kanin in Bovec, Slovenia
In this impressive video you will see that the solid wood product CLT by Stora Enso is also an ideal construction material for difficult and extreme locations.
Hotel extension with CLT by Stora Enso
The video clip shows the two-storey CLT extension of Hotel Reimar in Sant Antoni de Calonge (Girona, Spain). A total of 500 m³ of CLT by Stora Enso was used to complete the building work which took place from October to December 2016. The main reasons for using CLT were its low weight and short construction time thanks to the high level of prefabrication.
What a tree can do
The world needs a new approach to materials. Stora Enso develops and produces a range of packaging, pulp, wooden building solutions, paper and biomaterials derived from wood. But we’re not stopping there. We believe that anything made from fossil-based materials today can be made from a tree tomorrow. Have you ever thought about what a tree can do? Watch our film and find out.
The Finnish timber industry produces and distributes high-quality timber products throughout the world. The manufacture of timber products has a long tradition. A wide selection of products is available, ranging from sawn timber and engineered timber products to home accessories and furniture.
How can you recognize the best material of all?
This short, entertaining video explains why wood is the best material of all and why no other material has a smaller carbon footprint than wood.
Imagine a world without Stora Enso
What would the world be like without Stora Enso and its products? Our short film will give you a clue.

European forestry innovation: charting a path towards a green economy
This film highlights how Finland is setting an example in sustainable forest management and how the many and varied innovations emerging from Finland's forestry sector can help, not only Finland, but the rest of Europe, in achieving the goal of greening their economies. Wood, unlike fossil fuels, is a renewable resource, because trees regrow as the result of seed sowing, replanting and natural regeneration. Finland's work in developing innovative wood products, is demonstrating how wood can be used as a greener option not only in traditional industries such as construction and pulp and paper production.
Wood is the building material of the future
This video describes the CLT product, its advantages and areas of application.
