Welcome to SCA

We are driven by the force of the forest

The core of SCA’s business is the growing forest. Around this unique resource, we have built a well-developed value chain based on renewable raw material from our own and others’ forests. 

We offer packaging paper, pulp, wood products, renewable energy, services for forest owners and efficient transport solutions.




Industries in collaboration for a more sustainable future

The green chemical company Sekab and SCA have

worked together with RISE and RISE Processum in the Lignosize project with the idea of replacing today's fossil-based hydrophobing agents in the production of paper. By refining the renewable raw material lignin, the use of fossil chemicals in paper production will be reduced.

Warning system on SCA’s scarifiers protects remains

SCA is the first operator in the forestry i

ndustry to introduce a warning system on soil scarifiers to protect ancient and cultural remains. When lights flash in another color, operators know their machine is close to remains and can make sure the remains are not damaged. “This is revolutionary and a major step forward in our efforts to reduce damage,” says Ulla Sandenér, head of SCA’s forest management department.

Fossil free world

Limiting global warming is one of today's biggest challenges. As a forest company, we want to contribute and be part of the solution. Now we set a new goal and increase our climate benefit from 10 to 15 million tons of carbon dioxide per year by 2030 (base year 2019). The long-term goal is a fossil-free value chain. By 2030, we have set the goal of halving fossil emissions in the value chain.

Fossil-free world

A sustainable future

Ongoing projects that strengthen SCA's value chain

With the overall goal to maximize value creation, SCA uses a long-term and systematic approach to developing its value chain. Investments in the industrial structure must be profitable on their own merits and add value throughout the chain.

The world's largest machine for packaging paper
SCA is building a new paper machine for the production of kraftliner at Obbola paper mill in Umeå. The annual production in will increase from the current 450,000 to 725,000 tonnes to meet the growing demand for renewable packaging.

New pulp mill in Sundsvall
The CTMP market is growing globally and with our solid experience and expertise in mechanical pulp, we are now taking an important next step where we will increase production from the current 90,000 tons to 300,000 tons, starting early 2023.

New container port in Sundsvall
SCA invests in Tunadal port, Sundsvall, including new cargo handling areas. With this investment we will be able to offer even more efficient and competetive transports of products that are increasing in volumes in our region.

Investment to strengthen competitiveness and improve the environment
SCA invests MSEK 90 in the pulp mill in Östrand. The investment will lead to cost savings but also increase the factory's production capacity. The investment will also improve the local environment by reducing the risk of odour disturbances.

Project wind power
Within Renewable Energy, we develop SCA’s wind power assets and pursue SCA’s expanding involvement in wind energy. Together with our partners, we have helped to realize some of Sweden’s largest wind power ventures. Read more about the projects here.


Climate-neutral biofuel from the forest
Petrol, diesel, aviation fuel and chemicals that are currently produced using oil, may in the future be manufactured from forest and forest industry by-products. Östrand is one potential location for a future biorefinery. Read more about the project here.
