The rating is awarded for sustainability and corporate responsibility. Metsä Board has been awarded with this status for three years in a row now.
Metsä Board, a European manufacturer of premium fresh fibre board and a member of the Metsä Group, is proud to have been awarded the Ecovadis Gold rating for sustainability and corporate social responsibility for the third consecutive year. Overall, Metsä Board ranked among the top 1 % of Ecovadis rated corrugated board and board manufacturers.
“Responsible and sustainable action is a core aspect of our day-to-day business — today and in the future,” explains Anne Uusitalo, Product Safety and Sustainability Director at Metsä Board. “Ecovadis is one of the leading platforms that our customers use to evaluate their suppliers. This is another reason why this gold award is a valuable success for us.”
The Ecovadis platform enables companies to assess the social and environmental responsibility of their suppliers on a global scale. Four criteria are included in the evaluation: Environment, working conditions, sustainable supply chain and fair business practice. The methodological approach and the criteria comply with international CSR standards (Corporate Social Responsibility), including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the UN Global Compact and ISO 26000.
