In 2018, Holmen conducted a root and branch materiality analysis to establish our role in a sustainable future. The work included both internal and external stakeholders, with the results of the analysis providing the basis for the development of Holmen’s Group-wide sustainability work. The analysis showed that Holmen is an important player when it comes to climate change, biodiversity and the local community.
Many of the sustainability issues associated with these areas have been identified as essential to Holmen’s drive towards our vision of creating a sustainable future. Based on these numerous sustainability issues three focus areas were established so that we at Holmen will secure long-term profitability and a sustainable future.
