We serve forest owners and industries that use wood

The focus of our operations is Finland, where we serve the nearly 100,000 owner-members of our parent company Metsäliitto Cooperative. We procure all the wood used by Metsä Group. We also supply wood to selected external customers. Our skilled professionals and partners work daily to mitigate climate change and safeguard the biodiversity of forest nature.

We sustainably grow the value of the forest assets of Metsäliitto Cooperative’s owner-members and supply wood raw material to our customers cost-effectively and reliably.

We always prioritise our owner-members in our wood procurement. We procure all the wood used by Metsä Group from sustainably managed forests in the Baltic Sea region, most of it from our owner-members in Finland. We also supply significant volumes of energy wood, bark and sawdust for energy wood processing.

In 2021, certified wood accounted for 88 per cent of the wood we procured.

Our wood supply operations abroad ensure the wood supply to Metsä Group’s international production units, as well as the necessary supplementary deliveries to Finland. In March 2022, we discontinued wood procurement and imports from Russia. We do not procure wood originating in Belarus.

We offer our owner-members in Finland comprehensive services for forest management and for increasing their forest assets. Outside Finland, we offer limited forest management services to forest owners in Latvia.

We are developing measures to improve the biodiversity of commercial forests through Metsä Group’s ecological sustainability programme, initiated in 2020.
