Our objective is to increase the amount of carbon nound in forests by 30% (in hectares) from the 2018 level. We promote sustainable forest management, which is key to increasing the carbon storage of forests. Forests store carbon while growing. With the sustainable forest management and e.g. thinnings the trees get more light and space that supports the strong growth and accelerates carbon storing. Fertilising the forests can also be used to support the growth.
Our objective is to increase the amount of carbon stored in products by 30% (in tonnes) from the 2018 level. Products with a long life span have a clear role in mitigating the climate change. As an example, in buildings wood products store carbon for a long time. In the future, the portfolio may include for example textile fibres.
