Metsä Board has once again secured the prestigious platinum level in EcoVadis’s sustainability assessment, setting a new record for points earned. Maintaining this top-tier status since 2017 reflects the company’s unwavering commitment to responsibility and sustainability.

Metsä Board received high scores for each of the four evaluated themes and, with a combined score of 91/100, belongs to the top one percent in the category of paper, cardboard and packaging manufacturers. The overall score improved from last year’s level (87/100) due to better scores in the assessment of labor force and human rights (90/100). In the environmental section, the company received a full 100/100 points for the third year in a row.

“Responsibility is an essential part of our strategy and daily operations. We have actively developed our sustainability reporting, and the EU’s Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) already guided the content and structure of our sustainability report prepared for 2023. Transparent reporting makes our sustainability principles and operations visible also in the public eye and contributes to good success in evaluations, such as in Ecovadis,” says Mika Joukio, CEO of Metsä Board .

EcoVadis’s platform empowers companies to assess their suppliers’ global performance in environmental and social responsibility. The evaluation encompasses four key areas: environment, human rights and labor practices, business ethics, and sustainable procurement. Aligned with international Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) standards such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the UN Global Compact initiative, and ISO 26000, the methods and criteria ensure a comprehensive and standardized assessment process.
