Stora Enso sets a CO2 reduction target

Monday, March 17, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

March 12, 2008 -- Stora Enso has published today its CO2 reduction target of 20% by 2020 in its Annual Report for 2007. The target covers Stora Enso’s direct CO2 emissions from production as well as indirect emissions from purchased electricity and heat. The baseline year for the target is 2006.

At the same time Stora Enso presents the results of its carbon footprint study. In addition to direct CO2 emissions from production units and indirect emissions from purchased electricity and heat the study also covers outsourced activities such as transportation and harvesting. Stora Enso’s carbon footprint study follows the widely accepted protocol set out by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

“Defining the carbon footprint is the first step in identifying business case opportunities to reduce emissions. We have now taken our commitment to the next level by setting a reduction target”, says Eija Pitkänen, Head of Sustainability at Stora Enso.  

It is anticipated that the reduction will be primarily achieved through improvements in energy efficiency as well as increased use of biomass instead of fossil fuels.

Stora Enso’s Annual Report 2007 which contains more information on the CO2 reduction target and the results of the carbon footprint study is available at www.storaenso.com/annualreport.
