Metsä Board, the European producer of premium fresh fibre paperboards and part of Metsä Group, has achieved the Gold level rating by EcoVadis for its approach to sustainability. Overall Metsä Board was ranked in the top 1% of suppliers assessed by EcoVadis across all categories.
“We are very proud to have achieved this level of ranking. The assessment further enforces our continued commitment to sustainability. We recognise that sustainability must go beyond regulatory compliance to also focus on how companies manage their economic, social, and environmental impacts, as well as their relationships with stakeholders such as customers, employees, suppliers and government,” says Soili Hietanen, VP Sustainability and Energy at Metsä Board.
As part of the process, Metsä Board’s recent achievement of A-List recognitions in CDP’s Water and Climate programmes as well as Leadership status in CDP’s 2016 Forest and Supply Chain programmes were important considerations for the EcoVadis team.
