Creating better and lighter paperboard solutions has been a guiding principle of Metsä Board for decades. What keeps us going is to find the best possible packaging solutions with the least possible environmental impact. In short, Better with Less.

Lightweight boards are resource efficient in many ways: they consume less raw materials, reduce transport weight and produce less waste. They also ensure product safety and protection, as well as enable appealing promotion.

To serve you even better, we now bring our offering to you in a clearer and more unified way, making product selection easier. You will find all your trusted products, with the same winning properties, under one Metsä Board family. This will help you to find right solutions easier and in more logical way.

Together with our customers we want to create more sustainable, safe and efficient packaging to provide better customer experiences.
