For Holmen, the establishment of large-scale wind power provides a logical complement to our hydro power. It’s also an effective way of obtaining added value from our forest ownership, and additional renewable electricity is positive for both Sweden and the climate.
We are both proud and pleased to be on the Global 100 list as one of the most sustainable companies in the world. Holmen has taken a focused approach to sustainability issues for many years now. Being recognised and ranked highly by leading analysts is an acknowledgement of this work.
This ranking is the result of dedicated work and the strategic choices and investments we’ve made for the future, which have reinforced our sustainability profile. There is no doubt that the forest has good prospects as a raw material, especially amid a transition to a bio-economy in which products made from fossil raw materials are being replaced with renewable alternatives.
