The core values are clearly linked to our history. The story of how Södra started is in fact a story about collaboration, value-generating relationships and a sustainable and long-term approach. The core values have been with us ever since the forest owners formed the economic association. Value-generating relationships and a long-term approach has already led the way for generations, is the foundation of Södra and an integral part of who we are.
We are actively working with our core values, and through our work we are strengthening a unified company culture and creating One Södra. “By taking a long-term approach, Södra is building value-generating relationships and by building value-generating relationships, Södra is taking a long-term approach.”
