Metsä Spring has a broad presence in various R&D projects related to wood-based textile fibres. One of such projects is the GRETE project co-funded by the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (also known as CBE JU). Last Friday, Metsä Spring was honoured to co-host the GRETE partners in Finland jointly with the University of Helsinki. The second meeting day started with a forest tour in Kirkniemi, Finland. Hence, the forest tour was organised at Metsä Group’s visitor centre Nemus Futurum, which allows the visitors to learn about typical forest management practises in Finland. The traceability from textile fibre back to the certified forest is a key element in today’s textile fibre business.
