We promote credible forest certification as a tool to enhance sustainable forest management practices.
The two most significant forest certification systems recognised by Stora Enso are run by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™) and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®1).
The proportion of all forests worldwide certified as being under sustainable management is around 10%. Most of these certified forests are located in North America and Europe. We are actively working with our stakeholders to spread sustainable forest management and enhance certification systems.
In 2013 the share of certified wood in our total wood supply was 78% (74% in 2012). Stora Enso owns or leases lands with a total area of 1.1 million hectares, and 93% of this total area is certified.
