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 renewable energy from branches, treetops and bark.
Metsä Group has 36 production facilities in eight countries in Europe. Of the energy we use in production, 80% is renewable. We seek to maximise our use of renewable energy 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.
