SCA has recruited Per Funkquist as new Vice President Sustainability. Per Funkquist has extensive and solid experience in the forestry industry and will take up his new position on September 1, 2024.

Per Funkquist, who holds a degree in forestry from SLU - the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, is joining from a role as Director of Communication and Sustainability Procurement & Wood Supply at another forest industry company. Overall, Per has over two decades of experience in various forestry and forest industry roles, as well as several current and past trustee positions within the sector. Funkquist will start his new assignment on September 1, 2024.

  • The forest and the resource-efficient use of raw materials create the conditions for sustainability, growing forests with good conditions for biodiversity, and increasingly greater climate benefits. Therefore, it will be very exciting to work at SCA, Europe's largest private forest owner, which through its forestry holdings creates great benefits for both Sweden and the local communities in which the company operates, says Per Funkquist.

At SCA, sustainability work is an integrated part of the business and is based on six priority areas that encompass social, economic, and environmental goals.

The purpose is for the company's operations to create the maximum possible value, both in the forest and through the renewable products created from the forest raw material.

Anders Edholm, SVP Sustainability and Communications, therefore, sees the role as strategically important.

  • For SCA, sustainability, both socially and in the forest and through the benefits of our products, is a completely natural and integrated part of the business. Therefore, it feels very positive that we have managed to recruit Per who has extensive and solid experience in these complex and important issues, says Anders Edholm.
