​Earlier this year, Metsä Board gained a spot on the A List of CDP’s two other programmes, Water and Climate, for its sustainable water management and climate change actions.

For Metsä Board, a key part of sustainable forestry is forest renewal. In Finland, four new seedlings are planted for each harvested tree. 

All of the wood the company uses is traceable and comes from certified or controlled forests.“We know exactly where our wood comes from. Regular external and internal audits take place to ensure the sustainable management of these forests” says Anne Uusitalo, sustainability manager at Metsä Board.

Metsä Board promotes forest certification, conservation of biodiversity and sustainable forestry in all of its regions.

Fighting deforestation and forest degradation is of major importance as these account for approximately 10–15% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions.

The full Forests report and scores are available on CDP`s website www.cdp.net.
