Lendlease partners with Stora Enso for sustainable construction materials

A new studio for sustainable timber products will be built in Milan, Italy.                               

Lendlease has inked a global partnership with Finland-based renewable materials supplier, Stora Enso, on the use of sustainable timber products.

The partnership, which was launched in Milan, Italy on 1 October, will focus on three key areas: research and development into sustainable timber products including cross-laminated timber; new ways these products can be used in construction; and their accessibility in the global market.

Lendlease also announced the establishment of Podium MX, a studio dedicated to the creation of new sustainable timber products for the company’s European development projects.

The studio will be built in Lendlease’s Milan Innovation District or MIND.

As part of the partnership, Stora Enso’s product catalogue will also be fully digitised through Lendlease’s end-to-end digital platform, Podium.

Lendlease’s Global CEO and Managing Director Tony Lombardo said the company’s partnership with Stora Enso will help achieve its “most aggressive emissions reduction targets for the real estate sector globally—net-zero carbon emissions by 2025 and absolute zero by 2040.”

Prior to the global partnership, the two companies have worked together in constructing sustainable timber buildings in cities like London, Sydney, and Brisbane with the aim to lighten the construction industry's environmental footprint.
