STORA ENSO IN BRIEF
Our annual production capacity is 4.9 million tonnes of chemical pulp, 11.8 million tonnes of paper and board, 1.3 billion square metres of corrugated packaging and 6.0 million cubic metres of sawn wood products, including 3.1 million cubic metres of value-added products. Our sales in 2011 were EUR 11.0 billion, with an operational EBIT of EUR 866.7 million.
Stora Enso’s mission is to use and develop 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. Global Responsibility – meaning economic, social and environmental responsibility – underpins our thinking and our approach to every aspect of doing business.
Stora Enso will focus more on growth markets in China and Latin America, 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 potential, offering sustainable new solutions for our customers. Plantation-based pulp allows us to secure low-cost fibre for production.
