The forest and the forestry industry has been a strong contributor in creating the industrial nation Sweden is today. Sweden currently holds a leading position in the global market for forest products. Today, Swedish forest raw materials are efficiently processed into high-quality products for export worldwide and, as a substitute for steel and fossil fuels, plays a key role in the global transition towards a sustainable future. At MAQS, we have considerable insight into the forest industry’s specific conditions and driving forces. Our employees have extensive experience and practice in dealing with the issues that are typical for the industry.
The forest industry is an industry in constant transformation. The digitalisation in society creates major shifts in the types of processed forest products that are in demand, with large investments as a result. Better utilisation of by-products has opened the door to fossil-free biofuels. At the same time, digitalisation and artificial intelligence within forestry and forest industry are creating great opportunities, but also giving rise to new issues for the industry in IT, licenses and copyright. Increased commitment to sustainability issues and stricter national and EU requirements in environmental law place considerable demands on the industry in, among others things, on permit applications and how forestry is carried out.
