The Finnish energy sector is rapidly transitioning to renewable fuels, which has increased and will continue to increase the demand for energy wood. To ensure a more competitive wood sourcing and supply organisation, Neova Oy has decided to map out the strategic options for its wood business. The business area under review has a turnover of approximately 50 million euros and employs almost 50 employees in Neova Group.

Neova sources energy wood and sells local wood fuels to energy companies. The share of renewable biofuels is already more than half of Neova's fuel business turnover. Over the next few years, the company aims to achieve significant growth in the business and services based on the supply of renewable biofuels.

Neova has developed its wood business in Finland and Estonia with determination. The strategy has been sharpened and the company has been striving for better profitability by, among other things, focusing on the best partnerships and close customer relationships in selected geographical areas. Neova has also systematically increased wood imports as part of the business.

"Our customers are shifting to renewable fuels. Profitable growth of Neova's wood business through organic growth alone will be slow and requires significantly more resources than today. We are now mapping out the strategic options that will make our operations more efficient and thereby improve the competitiveness and profitability of our wood business," says Vesa Tempakka, CEO of Neova Oy.
