Metsä Board named on CDP ‘A List’ for leading effort against climate change for the fourth consecutive year

 

Metsä Board, the leading European producer of premium fresh fibre paperboards and part of Metsä Group, has once again achieved a place on CDP's prestigious 'A List' for climate change. CDP is a global non-profit environmental disclosure platform that drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. Metsä Board has been included on the CDP Climate 'A List' since 2016.

Metsä Board was recognised for its actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop a low-carbon economy. It is one of a small number of high-performing companies out of the thousands that were scored. In 2019, over 8,400 companies submitted information to be independently assessed against CDP's supplier engagement rating methodology.

"Metsä Board is a leader in sustainability and a position on the CDP Climate 'A List' is a welcome recognition to our continuous efforts. Last year we published our target to have 100% fossil free mills by 2030 and the 'A List' position confirms that we are working towards this ambitious goal," says Mika Joukio, CEO of Metsä Board.
