We communicate openly about our environmental impact
We communicate our product-specific environmental data through Paper Profile declarations. These declarations are issued for individual products to provide specific data on product composition and key environmental parameters (e.g. emissions into water and air, including COD, AOX, SO2 and CO2; waste; and purchased electricity consumption). Information is also provided on environmental management, the origin of wood, and chain of custody procedures.
Metsä Board was again nominated on both CDP’s Climate Change A-list and Water A-list in 2017. These high scores indicate that a company shows clear target based actions in these areas as well as provides robust data on climate issues and water use, and conveys a strong understanding of corporate climate and water related issues. Only companies in the top 5% and top 10% were nominated on the Climate and Water A -list, respectively, showing they have provided a high level of transparency in their disclosure of climate and water-related information.
As a recognition of our actions and reporting related to environmental, social and ethical issues Ecovadis scored Metsä Board a Gold level rating in 2017. Overall Metsä Board was ranked in the top 1% of suppliers assessed by EcoVadis across all categories.
