The European paper industry has already delivered a successful decoupling of carbon emissions from economic growth while reducing carbon emissions by 29% from 2005 to date, having product volumes increased and proved the climate friendliness of its products thanks to certified raw materials and a world class performance in recycling.

A new era has started in Stora Enso’s Oulu Mill in Finland: the mill is again producing after an investment shut-down. A former paper machine was converted for containerboard production, to serve the growing packaging market. In addition, the pulp mill was modified to produce unbleached kraft pulp.

Arctic Paper is commissioning the expanded hydropower plant at the mill in Munkedal. The investment of just over SEK 100 million increases the power from 2 to 6 MW, which in combination with the planned solid fuel boiler is sufficient to meet up to 80 percent of Arctic Paper Munkedal's energy needs with its own sustainable energy.
