The entire tree is used – nothing goes to waste

Metsä Group uses 100 per cent of the northern, sustainably grown wood raw material it acquires. Representing around 60 per cent of this material, timber logs are used to manufacture wood products e.g. for construction. Around 25 per cent of the raw material is pulpwood for production of pulp and other bioproducts. Bark and branches represent around 15 per cent and are used for renewable energy.

“Our goal is to know the components of trees so well that we can use 100 per cent of the tree and all of the side streams generated during production to manufacture products with maximal added value,” says Kaija Pehu-Lehtonen, Senior Vice President, Business Development at Metsä Fibre.
