This achievement marks Metsä Board’s continued commitment to environmental and social responsibility. 

The company has consistently earned the prestigious Platinum rating since 2017.

Metsä Board’s impressive score reflects strong performance across all four categories evaluated by EcoVadis: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement.

Notably, the company received a perfect score of 100/100 in the Environment category for the third consecutive year. 

Additionally, it saw improvement in Labor & Human Rights, achieving a score of 90/100.

“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,” said Metsä Board’s CEO Mika Joukio.

“Transparent reporting makes our sustainability principles and actions visible publicly and contributes to our success in trusted assessments such as that by EcoVadis.”

EcoVadis is a leading provider of sustainability ratings for businesses worldwide. 

Its assessment methodology is based on international corporate social responsibility standards, ensuring a comprehensive evaluation of a company’s sustainability practices.

By achieving this top-tier EcoVadis rating, Metsä Board strengthens its position as a reliable and sustainable supplier for businesses seeking eco-conscious partners.

Last month, Metsä Tissue, a tissue paper segment encompassing the greaseproof paper business of Metsä Group, was awarded the Platinum rating by EcoVadis for the fifth consecutive year.  

This rating, for the company’s sustainability and social responsibility practices, placed Metsä Tissue in the top 1% of all companies evaluated by EcoVadis.
