Holmen represents best practice where advanced environmental stewardship is concerned, with a thorough understanding of risks and opportunities related to climate change and active efforts to mitigate or capitalise on these risks and opportunities. This is clear from the annual study by CDP of the work on climate of thousands of companies.
CDP, a non-profit organisation, wishes to urge companies in the world to reduce their influence on the climate and natural resources. Over 800 institutional investor signatories representing assets in excess of USD 100 trillion are behind the study. Holmen has been reporting to CDP since 2007.
The renewable wood raw material from Holmen’s forests makes an important contribution to the vital work of promoting effective resource management and combating climate change. Holmen’s operations contribute to positive climate effects in several ways - above all through carbon dioxide being stored in the growing forest and thus the products.
