Story of Metsä

We are an internationally operating frontrunner in sustainable bioeconomy. We are a successful forest industry group with strong roots in the Finnish forests.

We produce fossil-free products from renewable wood grown in sustainably managed Northern forests. We invest in growth, innovating new bio-products and building a fossil-free future for our planet.

Building industrial ecosystems

Who makes miracles all by themselves? Not us. We build ecosystems. We advance bio and circular economy by innovating and cooperating beyond traditional business borders. Our aim is to find new use cases for our raw material, together with existing and new partners and customers. Together we can make the world run on renewables.

We invest in growth by developing technologies and building modern facilities. For example, the Äänekoski bioproduct mill is the world’s s largest wood-processing plant in the Northern Hemisphere, producing pulp and a broad range of other bioproducts and leading an industrial ecosystem. Similar mill is being built in Kemi. To boost the innovation collaboration we have established an innovation company Metsä Spring to invest in promising start-ups and demo projects in the field of wood-based circular bioeconomy.
