Metsä Board is committed to the principles of sustainability. We carefully consider the economic, social and environmental impacts of all our operations. Our lightweight paperboards are a good example of Metsä Board products that are sustainable throughout their life cycle.
Our main raw material is renewable and sustainably grown fresh fibre. We are always aware of the origins of the fibre we use. All Metsä Board products are recyclable and they offer excellent alternatives to more carbon-intensive products. Our operations are located in areas with rich forest and water resources.
Metsä Board uses materials and energy efficiently. We use large amounts of biofuels and we are a major producer of bioenergy. We continuously assess our operations to ensure they are efficient and environmentally friendly.
We are a major employer in many localities, and an active member of the local communities where we operate, so we also highlight the importance of social sustainability.
Focusing on sustainability issues
Sustainability is important not only to us and our business partners, but also to our customers. At Metsä Board we emphasise the importance of maintaining direct and transparent dialogues on sustainability issues with our key stakeholders.
We have divided our sustainability approach into four themes covering the whole value chain.
