The environmental commitment of the Finnish cardboard maker has been recognised by the CDP, a global environmental notation non-profit. Indeed, Metsä Board obtained a ‘A’ score for tackling climate change as well as acting to protect water security and forests - all three environmental themes covered by CDP.
Metsä Board, which produces packaging solutions based on fresh fibre raw materials that come from sustainably managed Northern European forests, is one of only 14 companies that achieved a triple ‘A’, out of nearly 12,000 companies that were scored based on data submitted through CDP’s questionnaires in 2021.
This is the sixth consecutive year that Metsä Board achieved the position on the CDP Climate A list as well as the sixth year placed on the CDP Water A list, and the first time on the CDP Forest A list.
“Sustainability is a prerequisite of a profitable business. It is also important for our customers and other stakeholders that the cooperation with Metsä Board is built on a responsible foundation. We have ambitious sustainability targets including 100% fossil free mills and raw materials by the end of 2030. These ‘A List’ positions are a recognition of our systematic work to achieve these goals," says Mika Joukio, CEO of Metsä Board.
CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognised as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency.
