We are convinced that, to meet the climate challenge, there has to be a shift to a bioeconomy. Our vision: The Swedish forest sector driving growth in the world’s bioeconomy.
More products have to be based on renewable resources such as forests. Fewer have to be based on finite resources such as oil and coal. For there to be growth and sustainability at the same time, a bioeconomy is essential.
That the world's nations unified around a global climate agreement shows global unanimity and determination. It is, of course, very welcome. The climate agreement validates our vision. Meeting the climate challenge demands a bioeconomy in which forest industries are key players.
Sweden is well placed to drive the development of sustainability - there are endless natural resources, skilled innovators and a strong desire to invest in a fossil-free society. The forest industry uses renewable forest as a source for doing business. Stores that not only we benefit, but the whole of humanity.
