Enable Green Potential
for the Future Growth


The forest industry provides a variety of solutions to meet the needs of the consumers, industries and society at large. The ever-increasing product portfolio ranges from massive timber construction elements to high-tech nanocellulose.

Our industry already contributes to the circular bioeconomy and to a greener and wealthier European Union.The forest industry provides solutions that can replace fossil-intensive products and store bio-based carbon. Through sustainable forest management we enhance long-term carbon sequestration, biodiversity, and source our main raw materials from renewable feedstocks.

How to enable the contribution of our industry to the wellbeing of people and the planet? We need better regulation - a coherent and predictable framework promoting the circular bioeconomy.
