Partnership for Circular Economy Solutions

Stora Enso, a global provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper, and Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, Finland, have signed a partnership agreement to develop low-carbon, eco-friendly operations at the stadium by promoting the use of renewable materials and circular economy.

As reported by Stora Enso, the company and Helsinki Olympic Stadium share the aim of promoting the use of renewable materials in customer and foodservice packaging to reduce the climate impact of stadium operations. “In addition, the aim is to ensure that materials get recycled to a high degree,” the paper manufacturer underlined. “Packaging made of renewable materials has a high recycling rate throughout Europe, and it typically has a low carbon footprint that is further reduced when recycled.” Olympic Stadium promotes the goal of a carbon-neutral Helsinki by 2035 following the Helsinki City Strategy 2017–2021. Circular economy solutions are enabled through cooperation with partners of the Olympic Stadium, including the food and catering service company Compass Group and the future recycling partner, the information said.
