Holmen's forest holdings form the basis for the Group's business. We work together to efficiently and sustainably use the forest, which increases the growth and opportunities for harvesting. The forest contributes a great deal of climate benefit by binding carbon dioxide and providing the industry with renewable and fossil-free raw materials.
Region Mid supplies the Holmen Group's plants, Iggesund mill and Iggesund sawmill and Hallsta paper mill, with raw material. Here we manage about 265,000 hectares of Holmen's forest land.
Holmen is one of the biggest forest owners in Sweden and the growing forest is the basis of our business. We are part of the ecocycle from seedling to plank, where the raw material is refined into everything from wood for climate-smart buildings to renewable packaging, magazines and books.
Together with Iggesund's sawmill, Iggesund's mill creates a biocombine with smart environmental solutions for the future. The mill supplies the sawmill with steam which is used to dry the timber and in return receives raw material in the form of wood chips to make pulp or energy.
