Wood-based bioeconomy

Forests form the foundation of Finnish bioeconomy and are the country’s most valuable natural resource. In Finland, 80% of the land area is forest, which is managed in a way that much more wood grows every year than is being utilised. Besides paper, wood is now also being used for many other products, such as medicines, foods, plastics, textiles, cosmetics and bio-oils.
