On the UN International Day for Biological Diversity, Greenpeace activists surprise potential investors taking part of forest giant SCA’s "capital markets day" near Sundsvall in the North of Sweden. Activists deliver materials to the investors explaining why the forestry practices of SCA is unsustainable and a threat to biodiversity, urging great caution when considering any investments in the company.
Greenpeace demands that SCA, a major pulp supplier, stop their logging of ecologically valuable forest and stop planting the invasive species Lodgepole pine. The Lodgepole pine (Pinus Contorta) prevents lichen growth and grow so densely they make it impossible for the indigenous Sámi to use the land for reindeer herding. There are very few natural forests left in the Great Northern Forest, particularly in Sweden and Finland, where about 90% of the forest is in industrial use.
Shoot includes aerial images of SCA’s tree nursery in Timra, the boreal region of Sweden. It is the biggest nursery of its kind where SCA’s invasive Pinus Contorta pine is being produced before being planted out in nature, often replacing natural forests.
