Segezha Group

Segezha Group is a unique Russian timber holding company. It stands out in the industry with a full cycle of its own logging and specialisation in the production of a wide range of high-margin products. The focus of development is on environmentally friendly technologies for added-value wood processing and comprehensive use of raw materials. The group is one of the largest forestry companies in the world. The total leased forest area is 15.7 million hectares, and the annual estimated logging site is 22.7 million cubic meters (including PIP, including priority investment projects). Business stability is guaranteed by the high degree of self-sufficiency in raw materials, as 84% of the company's timber needs are covered by its resources. The international status of an environmentally and socially aware forestry company is backed by the fact that 88% of the company's forest plots are certified for compliance with the international voluntary forest certification standards (not including Inter Forest Rus). To increase the contribution of Russian forests in the global fight against climate change, as well as to improve their productivity, the principles of sustainable forest management based on a scientifically proven intensive model are being introduced in all of the group's forest assets. Segezha Group is a leader in several highly environmentally friendly, carbon-depositing products of the timber industry. For instance, it is Russia's largest producer of paper for multilayer bags, industrial paper bags, and timber. Globally, the group is the world's 2nd largest producer of Kraft paper and industrial paper packaging; and the world's 5th largest producer of large-format birch plywood. The company is also 3rd among the leading European producers of lumber. Segezha Group is an international holding, it operates in 14 countries, but all the main production facilities are concentrated exclusively in the Russian Federation. The company is a strong player in the global market of forest products and responds flexibly to the slightest changes in the global business environment, it is represented in the markets of more than 100 countries.
