Opportunity

Stora Enso offers comprehensive services to forest owners for profitable and sustainable forest management. We want to make forest management easier than ever before. Now we are looking for digital solutions that can process big data and create even more accurate, updated and personalized forest management plans.

Opportunity overview

Forest owners need to plan for the long term to practice sustainable forestry. The forest management plan is at the core of responsible forestry, as today’s decisions will have a lasting impact. Today’s forest owners have more and more daytime jobs outside forestry and agriculture, hence having less understanding of how their woods are developing. However, there is an ever greater interest in understanding how different ways of managing forests help satisfy economic sustainability and social goals. Stora Enso wants to provide state-of-the-art forest management services and become the leading partner for the new generation of forest owners.

Today, forest management planning and data collection are most often done manually. We have access to a lot of data together with Forest Sweden and open source, but no tools to put it together and visualize it in a fast and appealing way. Forest management plans are updated annually, but the data becomes more inaccurate yearly.

We are looking for software solutions that can process big data, visualize it appropriately, and do so continuously with real-time data. The answer should be designed for future changes, interoperable through layering and API exposure, secure, and as data non-redundant as possible.

Your opportunity with Stora Enso

We seek a partner to help us co-develop and innovate solutions to manage our forestry data. We want to work together and share our industry knowledge to provide you with valuable information, enabling your company to further opportunities within the industry. With the selected partner, we would start the proof-of-concept with a pre-study to find out:

  • How to assemble and use our different data sources (in-house available data and publicly available data)
  • How that data can be instantly visualized in a forest management plan, e.g., a web page or app
  • How it stays up to date

Examples we're looking for

Creating a forest management plan

A forest owner logs into the Stora Enso Forest service page to purchase a management plan. The management plan is created instantly, and the forest owner can walk virtually around their woods, sign contracts, and take advantage of the full range of Stora Enso digital services.

Receiving updates

Forest owners receive updates after a harvest operation or silvicultural action. The management plan is automatically updated with all new figures for the compartment/stand.

Personalization

They are adapting to the forest owners’ targets. Every forest owner has an idea/target for their forest. By stating how important each target is (e.g., on a scale from 1-10), the plan should adopt the management schema of the particular forest to meet the customer’s needs.

Part of the global bioeconomy, Stora Enso is a leading provider of renewable products in packaging, biomaterials, and wooden construction and one of the largest private forest owners in the world. We believe that everything that is made from fossil-based materials today can be made from a tree tomorrow.
