Holmen has appointed Stina Sandell Director of Sustainability and Communications, a newly created post that sees her reporting to the CEO as a member of Group management.
"Holmen has a long history of working actively on sustainability issues. With our considerable renewable forest and hydro power assets and our products based on fresh fibre, we help drive the transition to a more sustainable society," says Holmen's President and CEO Henrik Sjölund. "The aim of the new post is to draw on our excellent sustainability assets to strengthen our business."
Stina Sandell comes to Holmen from SBAB, where she was Head of Sustainability, and before that her positions have included Director of Sustainability and Communications at AMF. She will begin her new job in May.
Current Director of Communications Ingela Carlsson has chosen to leave the company after nine years in her post.
"Ingela Carlsson has done a tremendous job of developing Holmen's communications work and shown enormous commitment over the years. We wish Ingela every success as she chooses to take on new challenges outside the company," says Henrik Sjölund.
Forest and hydro power make up two thirds of Holmen's assets. Together with large-scale production of paperboard, paper and wood products in well invested plants, this provides stable profitability that will increase over time. In addition, Holmen's business brings substantial climate benefits, as it reduces the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by over 2 million tonnes per year. At this year's World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Holmen was named one of the world's 100 most sustainable corporations by Canadian analysis firm Corporate Knights.
