The Finnish producer of premium fresh fibre paperboards has once again been rewarded a position on the CDP Water A List as well as on the CDP Climate A List. This is the third consecutive year that the company has been included on the CDP Water A List and the second year on the CDP Climate A List. Metsä Board also achieved Leadership status in the CDP Forest programme for the third year in a row.

Only 10% of the companies participating in CDP’s water programme have been be placed on the Water A List and only 5% of those participating in CDP’s climate change programme have been featured on the 2017 Climate A List.
“We’re delighted that Metsä Board was once again rated among the world’s best performing companies by CDP,” says Mika Joukio, CEO of Metsä Board. “Sustainability actions should be initiated and driven by the company’s top management to ensure engagement throughout the business. For Metsä Board the reduction in CO2 emissions and water usage have also delivered overall cost efficiencies along with sustainability benefits.”
