IMF published this video item, entitled “Finland Leads the Way with Climate-Friendly Wood Innovations” – below is their description.

While many countries pursue business-as-usual, Finland is helping solve the climate crisis through innovation. With 65 percent of its land covered by forests, Finland has wood in abundance. Cutting-edge Finnish companies are inventing new ways to use wood, from the production of clothing to multi-story buildings, and packaging for the global Internet economy. Products are easy to recycle, biodegradable and hypoallergenic, and CO2 can remain stored in cut wood for decades and even centuries. And with policies that require four trees to be planted for every tree harvested, Finland’s forests are growing.

Speakers:

Mikko Hautala

Ambassador of Finland to the United States

Peter Dohlman

Former IMF Mission Chief for Finland

Timo Heikka

Vice President, Stora Enso

Nikas Von Weymarn

CEO, Metsä Spring Ltd
