«Corporate social responsibility is an integral part of our strategy and day-to-day operations. We have actively developed our sustainability reporting and the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (Csrd) already guided the content and the structure of our Sustainability Statement 2023. Transparent reporting makes our sustainability principles and actions visible publicly and contributes to our success in trusted assessments such as that by EcoVadis» says Metsä Board’s CEO Mika Joukio.

EcoVadis operates a platform allowing companies to assess the environmental and social performance of its suppliers on a global basis. Their Sustainability Scorecard illustrates performance in four different areas: environment, labour and human rights, ethics as well as sustainable procurement.
