Water – a vital resource

News |
The forest industry has reduced the amount of emissions by developing processes that utilise fewer raw materials to create more products with a lower production input. The systems used in Finnish mills have been selected from the best available techniques for production. The forest industry spends nearly 150 € million annually on environmental protection.
 
The emissions load caused by forest industry operations and its effects on watercourses is relatively low. Among other factors, the improvement in water quality is indicated by the return of fish stocks downstream of mill locations.
