Business Plan through 2022

Ilim Group is a global company striving to secure its leading role in all key pulp and paper segments while remaining one of the most profitable companies in the industry. To achieve these goals we have developed an action plan reflected in the Business Plan through 2021 which involves the development and upgrade of the Company’s locations in Bratsk, Koryazhma, and Ust-Ilimsk.

The Business Plan provides for implementation of a number of projects to upgrade the facilities, improve the efficiency of operations and the quality of products, reduce the Company's environmental footprint, and increase production volumes. Development of the Mills will be accompanied by an increase in own harvesting volumes and broader involvement of third party wood suppliers.

By 2021, we will have invested about USD 3 billion. At present, more than 20 large capital projects are in the implementation stage.
