Development Strategy

Segezha Group comprises forest, wood processing and pulp and paper assets in Russia and Europe. The company is developing as a large timber holding with presence in all the key value segments – from in-house logging at leased forest plots to sale of high-margin products in the most attractive markets, both in Russia and abroad.

Segezha Group’s strategy is aimed at creating an industry leader in production efficiency on the basis of a vertically integrated and diversified business model, which allows the company to create added value and business sustainability. Segezha Group is the largest forest user in Russia. Over 80% of the Group’s demand for raw wood is met by its own forest resources, that makes the company a market leader in terms of production costs in all its business segments. A well-balanced portfolio of assets, including high-quality leased forests, logging and processing facilities, makes it possible to monetize forest resources with maximum efficiency and profitability. The focus of Segezha Group development is on environmentally friendly technologies for added-value wood processing and comprehensive use of raw materials.

In April 2021, Segezha Group held IPO on the Moscow Exchange, having become the first Russian public company in the timber industry.
