Metsä Board recognised by CDP as a global leader in sustainable water management and climate action
Metsä Board has once again been rewarded a position on the CDP Water A List as well as on the CDP Climate A List. This is the third consecutive year that the company has been included on the CDP Water A List and the second year on the CDP Climate A List. Metsä Board also achieved Leadership status in the CDP Forest programme for the third year in a row. CDP is a non-profit global environmental disclosure platform.
Metsä Board is among the top 10 per cent of companies participating in CDP’s water programme to be placed on the Water A List. This achievement is in recognition of its actions in the last reporting year to manage water more sustainably. Additionally, Metsä Board is among the top five per cent of companies participating in CDP’s climate change programme to be featured on the 2017 Climate A List. This positioning recognises its activities to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy.
“We’re delighted that Metsä Board was once again rated among the world’s best performing companies by CDP,” says Mika Joukio, CEO of Metsä Board.
“Sustainability actions should be initiated and driven by the company’s top management to ensure engagement throughout the business. For Metsä Board the reduction in CO2 emissions and water usage have also delivered overall cost efficiencies along with sustainability benefits,” concluded Joukio.
