At SCA Packaging we view sustainability as an investment rather than an expense. It is a decisive factor for a prosperous future for our company.
Sustainabilty in SCA rests on the three pillars of Environment, Social and Economic responsibility.
We have 4 clear sustainability targets and have reporting mechanisms behind those to monitor our results & progress.
A more detailed description can be found in our annual SCA Sustainability report and on www.sca.com/sustainability
Our sustainable product
Paper and board is made from cellulose fibre and the source of this fibre is wood. Trees grow by absorbing carbon dioxide through a natural process called photosynthesis.
Around 50% of the total quantity of fresh fibre which SCA uses comes from its own forests in Northern Sweden. The total area of these forests is around 2.6 million hectares and the stock of wood in these forests increases at the rate of 1% per year.
This equates to the net storage, or “sequestration”, of some 2.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year, which is close to SCA’s total emissions of fossil CO2.
