You can’t see the carbon for the trees
In Timrå, not far from Sundsvall, we’re financing SCA’s push to make its production processes more sustainable. Our financing supported the regeneration and replanting of 68 000 hectares of forest—that’s three times the area of Stockholm. Forests sequester substantial amounts of CO2.
CO2 in trees and wood is locked in for decades both when in the forest and when transformed into wood products. The forestry measures we financed at SCA absorb over 44 000 additional tonnes of CO2 equivalents per year, equal to the emissions generated by 14 000 petrol cars in one year.
