Metsä Board's leadership in water management, forest management and supplier commitment to climate change recognised by CDP

CDP, the international non-profit organisation, has once again recognised Metsä Board, a leading European producer of premium virgin fibre-based board and a member of the Metsä Group. Metsä Board received an A- rating in both CDP's water and forest programmes. The Finnish company also received an A- rating in CDP's Supplier Engagement Rating. This rating assesses the company's efforts to manage fossil carbon dioxide emissions and integrate the supply chain in the fight against climate change. Earlier this year, Metsä Board was also nominated for CDP's Climate A-list for the fourth consecutive year.

In 2019, Metsä Board announced its new, ambitious sustainability targets for 2030, including the goal of phasing out the use of fossil fuels in its board mills and completely eliminating fossil CO2 emissions by then. The new targets also include a 30 percent reduction in process water consumption per tonne of product compared to 2018 levels, and Metsä Board also aims to increase the proportion of certified fibre in its products to at least 90 percent by 2030.
"We must all act to combat climate change. I am proud that the work we do at Metsä Board has once again been recognised by CDP. We continue our activities to reduce emissions, mitigate climate change and develop a low-carbon economy," says Mika Joukio, CEO of Metsä Board. "The new targets we set last year confirm our continued commitment to further reducing CO2 emissions and water consumption".
