Metsä Board recognised as a world leader for supplier engagement on climate change by CDP

International News

Metsä Board Corporation, a part of Metsä Group, has been recognised by CDP for its leadership in developing supplier engagement to tackle climate change and manage carbon emissions.

CDP, a non-profit global environmental disclosure platform, has awarded Metsä Board a coveted position on its third annual Supplier Engagement Rating leader board. The leader board comprises of companies from around the world that have been specifically identified as leaders in their efforts and actions to manage carbon emissions and address climate-related issues across their supply chains in the past CDP-reporting year.

Over 5,000 companies submitted information to be independently assessed against CDP’s supplier engagement rating methodology. Of the companies that participated in CDP’s supply chain programme during 2018, only 3% were awarded a place on the leader board.

This recognition further builds upon Metsä Board’s recent achievement of being placed on the 2018 CDP A list for both climate change and water security. Metsä Board also scored A- in the CDP’s Forest programme.

CDP is an international non-profit organization that drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. Voted number one climate research provider by investors, CDP leverages investor and buyer power to motivate companies to disclose and manage their environmental impacts. The Supplier Engagement leader board is available on CDP’s website.
