The Financial Times published its first listing of Europe’s Climate Leaders in May 2021. The European companies that had achieved the biggest reduction in their greenhouse gas emissions intensity between 2014-19 were accepted on the list of 300 best performing companies.
Metsä Board was named as one of the businesses on the list. The report is a public acknowledgement of the company’s leadership in reducing their emissions intensity at a time when the fight against global warming remains a primary issue.
Metsä Board’s greenhouse gas emission reduction targets are approved by the Science Based Targets initiative, and they meet the most ambitious goals of the Paris Agreement, i.e. limiting global warming to 1.5°C. The aspiring target is that all mills will use 100% fossil free energy and raw materials by the end of 2030.
“Metsä Board is a leader in sustainability and a position on the FT List is a welcome recognition to our continuous efforts. The position on this list confirms the considerable work we have already done to reduce our emissions and reinforces our commitment of working towards our 2030 ambitious goal of 100% fossil free mills and raw materials,” says Anne Uusitalo, Sustainability Director at Metsä Board.
