Stora Enso promote rethinkers among students

“Rethink” is the philosophy of Stora Enso and the driver in our change process. It is mainly a way of developing our company, but in Anjala Mill and Ingerois Mill in Finland Stora Enso is promoting rethinking also outside the company.

​“We had a fund which was established about 40 years ago at the 100 years celebration of our mills. This fund is now used for scholarships at local schools. When we discussed the criteria we wanted to promote students who think outside of the box. Not just those with good results, but those who ask many questions and don’t take anything for granted, real rethinkers,” says Tuomas Puonti, Mill controller at Ingerois mill.

​The scholarships are awarded annually. Earlier this spring the 9th grader Ella Leino received the Rethink scholarship of € 300 and the high school student Esa Vikberg received € 500.
