100% renewable for 100% sports

Stora Enso is the presenting sponsor of the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Lahti, which takes place 22 February − 5 March 2017. ​Stora Enso and Lahti2017 together aim to lead the way in promoting and supporting sustainable events with renewable materials for packaging, biomaterials, wood products and paper, as well as by maximising the recycling and reuse of products.

Stora Enso's theme for Lahti2017 is '100% renewable for 100% sports' and our renewable materials are combined in many special products to be used at games. Wooden elements can be seen at the games including the podium, the countdown clock and the main gate. Spectators can try out mini snow gliders made of milk carton board, and enjoy their drinks served in carton board cups. Stora Enso is also providing all the printing and office papers needed for Lahti2017

Renewable energy with pellets

Renewable energy is used in the games. In addition to wind power, heat is produced with Pellets by Stora Enso. In the game area there will be three pellet containers that are heating tents and also a teepee in the Forest VIP area. Pellets are a good example of utilising the raw materials more efficiently. They are highly energy efficient and environmentally sound.

You can find pellets also at the Stora Enso expo. Visit our stand and get a discount code for the webshop!
