The Paper Profile scheme is a standardised tool used by the manufacturers of paper and board products to communicate the environmental performance of their products. It was jointly developed by paper manufacturers, distributors and industry associations across Europe. The goal of these product-specific declarations is to provide objective, transparent and comparable information on key environmental parameters such as emissions, electricity, waste and product composition.
Metsä Board uses several product declarations intended for pulp and paper products, such as Paper Profile, and we are working towards adopting a unified life cycle assessment approach across all our main product categories. In 2001 Metsä Board was amongst the first paperboard producers to launch Paper Profiles for all of its board products, and the information in these is always verified by an external third party. Metsä Board’s Paper Profiles can be found in each product’s detailed specifications. See the Paper Profiles of all our products.
