Stora Enso's Statement Concerning Forest Lapland
Helsinki, Finland, 23 March 2007 -- Stora Enso does not receive wood deliveries from disputed areas in Forest Lapland. The state-owned enterprise Metsähallitus has completed logging operations in Forest Lapland for the season.

Currently, 43% of Forest Lapland's forests are strictly protected. The other forests are classified as commercial forests and forest management methods are carried out in a sustainable way.

However, due to the concerns expressed by stakeholders, Stora Enso requests Metsähallitus to conduct a thorough analysis of ecological conditions in the disputed areas of Forest Lapland before recommencing logging. The completion of an additional analysis would help reassess which areas are suitable for commercial forestry and which are not.
