Metsä Board Sustainability Report 2022

14 We are on schedule to have 100% fossil free production and products by the end of 2030.

We are taking a broad range of actions to achieve our ambitious sustainability targets

It’s good to see that our systematic work has not gone unnoticed. For the second year in a row, we secured a place on the ’A’ List in all of CDP’s three environmental focus areas: climate change, water security and forests. In EcoVadis’s evaluation, we were in the top 1% among paper, paperboard and packaging manufacturers, receiving 100% in the environment section. Naturally, improving sustainability is an ongoing joint effort with our customers, partners and suppliers. Co-creation with our Excellence Centre and 360 Services has helped many of our customers lower their use of plastic and reduce the carbon footprint of their packaging. I hope we can further develop this cooperation as it takes a combined effort to succeed together.

While we say that sustainability is at the core of our operations, we also want to walk the walk. Every employee at Metsä Board has at least one sustainability objective included in the personal performance goals. Mine, for example, concerns safety at work. Achieving our increasingly ambitious sustainability targets by the end of 2030 takes a broad range of actions like this – both small and large. We invest in our production units to make them more resource efficient and their production 100% fossil free. Together with our customers and partners, we innovate paperboard and packaging solutions that reduce environmental impacts throughout the value chain. Our measures to ensure a responsible corporate culture and supply chain are now even more comprehensive.
