Stora Enso partners with IUCN to advance positive impacts on biodiversity

Stora Enso has, as a forest industry forerunner, developed a science-based framework to verify net positive impact on biodiversity. Through combining science, technology and data, the framework enables forecasting of biodiversity impact, which allows operations to be adapted towards a net positive goal. The partnership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) will provide external expert insights for further development and validation of the framework.

Stora Enso’s sustainability strategy focuses on climate change, biodiversity, and circularity, and the Company’s biodiversity goal is to have a net positive impact within its own forests and plantations through active management. IUCN is the leading non-profit nature conservation organisation globally, supporting companies with nature-positive tools and practices to reverse biodiversity loss. Stora Enso’s partnership with IUCN focuses on developing a framework to measure and disclose net positive biodiversity impact.

“The world is facing a great sense of urgency to halt biodiversity loss and the forest sector has a central role in making this happen. True to our sustainability leadership ambition, we want to accelerate the pace of change through global collaboration and shared goals. Our new partnership with IUCN is an opportunity to implement new ways of working that will help guide our commitment towards a net positive biodiversity impact,” says Hans Sohlström, President and CEO, Stora Enso.
