Metsä Board, part of Metsä Group, has achieved Leadership status in the materials sector of CDP’s 2016 Forest Programme for the second year in a row. This follows swiftly on the news that CDP recently recognised Metsä Board’s management of water security and climate change with A-List positions in both programmes.
For Metsä Board, a key part of sustainable forestry is forest renewal. “Here in Finland, four new seedlings are planted for each harvested tree. Metsä Group delivers seedlings to forest-owners for planting, and during the past couple of years this has amounted annually to 30 million seedlings, which is an impressive number,” says
Mika Joukio, Metsä Board’s CEO.
Metsä Board promotes forest certification in all operating regions to conserve biodiversity and to ensure multiple use of forests. Metsä Board actively participates in development of certification via its parent company Metsä Group. All the wood the company uses is traceable and comes from certified or controlled forests.
