Metsä Board achieves EcoVadis Gold rating for its sustainability practices


ESPOO, Finland (News release) -- Metsä Board, the leading 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 Metsä Board's 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.

EcoVadis operates a platform allowing companies to assess the environmental and social performance of its suppliers on a global basis. The criteria include four themes; the environment, labour practices, sustainable procurement and fair business practices. The methodology and criteria used are in line with international Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) standards including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), UN Global Compact, and ISO 26000.
