Stora Enso AB
Stora Enso – the global rethinker of the paper, biomaterials, wood product and packaging industry
Stora Enso was established in 1998 in the merger of two forest industry companies: the Swedish Stora AB and the Finnish Enso Oyj. The roots of both companies can be traced back to the latter half of the 19th century in Finland, Norway and Sweden, but Stora Kopparsberg Bergslags, originally a mining company in Sweden, is first mentioned in documentary sources already in 1288, making Stora Enso in a way the oldest surviving company in Northern Europe.
Stora Enso produces a wide selection of packaging boards in every category and provides the largest variety of polymer coatings. Our boards are manufactured in Finland, Spain and Sweden. Extrusion coating plants in Finland and Sweden complete the production of baseboards with comprehensive facilities for moisture and oxygen barrier coatings. Our true ambition is the cooperation with our partners, aiming to promote the efficiency and sustainability of fibre-based packaging.
Stora Enso is the global rethinker of the paper, biomaterials, wood product and packaging industry.We always rethink the old and expand to the new to offer our customers innovative solutions based on renewable materials.
The Group has (2012) some 30 000 employees in more than 35 countries worldwide, and is a publicly traded company listed in Helsinki and Stockholm. Our customers include publishers, printing houses and paper merchants, as well as the packaging, joinery and construction industries.
Stora Enso’s mission is to use and develop its expertise in renewable materials to meet the needs of its customers and many of today’s global raw material challenges. Our products provide a climate-friendly alternative to many products made from competing non-renewable materials, and have a smaller carbon footprint. Our solutions based on wood therefore have wide-reaching benefits for us as a business, for people and for the planet. Global Responsibility underpins our thinking and our approach to every aspect of doing business.
Stora Enso Renewable Packaging is one of Stora Enso's four Business Areas. We produce fibre-based packaging materials and innovative packaging solutions for consumer goods and industrial packaging applications. We operate in every stage of the value chain, from pulp production, material and packaging production to recycling.
