We use raw materials, energy and water as efficiently as possible. We make highly efficient use of different parts of the tree: we deliver logs to sawmills, make pulp from pulpwood for further processing, and produce bioenergy from branches, treetops and bark.
Metsä Group has production facilities in seven countries in Europe. Of the energy we use in production, 86% is wood-based bioenergy. We seek to maximise our use of bioenergy and have significantly reduced our emissions into the air and water. Our pulp mills are major producers of energy, and they sell energy in the form of heat to local district heating networks and electricity to the grid.
