Our business concept is to own and add value to the forest
Holmen's large forest holdings form the basis for our business.The growing trees are refined into everything from wood for climate-smart building to renewable packaging, magazines and books, while we produce hydro- and wind power on our own land.
A business that creates value for both shareholders and customers while contributing to a better climate and thriving rural communities.
Forest - Active forestry
The revenue from and value of the forest will grow through active and sustainable forestry, where the harvest is managed and refined into climate-smart products. A strong position in the wood market will contribute to the competitiveness of Holmen’s industries.
Paperboard - High-performance premium paperboard
The paperboard business will grow based on Holmen’s position as a market leader in the premium segment for consumer packaging. High quality and custom solutions are combined with large-scale production.
Paper - Cost-effective alternatives
The paper business will develop by offering cost-effective alternatives to traditional products for advertising, magazines and books.
