Promoting sustainable bioeconomy
Metsä Board is committed to sustainability. We carefully consider the economic, social and environmental impacts of all our operations.
Respect for human rights and ethical decision-making guide our business. We are a major employer in many localities, and an active member of the local communities where we operate.
Our main raw material is renewable fresh fibre that originates from sustainably managed forests. We always know the origin of the fibre we use and expect that our partners within the supply chain also operate responsibly.
Metsä Board’s operations are located in areas with rich forest and water resources, but still we use materials and energy resource-wisely. We continuously assess our operations to ensure they are efficient and strive for minimising environmental impacts. We are also a major producer of renewable energy, and we constantly aim to increase the share of renewable energy as part of our total energy consumption.
Our lightweight paperboards are a good example of products that are sustainable throughout their life cycle. All Metsä Board products are recyclable, and they offer excellent alternatives to more carbon-intensive products.
Sustainability and social responsibility are important to us as well as to our business partners, customers, and investors. At Metsä Board we emphasise the importance of maintaining direct and transparent dialogues on sustainability issues with our key stakeholders.
