HELSINKI, Nov. 7, 2018 (Press Release) -Stora Enso’s Sustainability Report 2017 was chosen as best by Finnish financial journalists in a competition organised by the corporate responsibility network FIBS. Our report was short-listed among the 10 best reports in the overall competition.
Finnish financial journalists considered the report as the best sustainability report for 2017. They emphasized the usability of the report; even if the report contains a lot of information, the facts are easily found.
“We are pleased that our report has received recognition also from media. A good report must be consistent and comprehensive, but also practical and easy to use,” says Eeva Taimisto, Head of Sustainability Communications at Stora Enso.
Stora Enso’s Annual Report 2017 is comprised of four separate publications: the Progress Book, the Sustainability Report, the Financial Report, and the Corporate Governance Report. The reports can be downloaded at storaenso.com/annualreport
The annual sustainability report review has been organised since 1996, and this year in co-operation with Aalto University, FIBS, Finsif, Nasdaq Helsinki, Finnish Auditors, Association for Environmental Management, and the Finnish Ministry of the Environment. In addition, three stakeholder groups’ favourite reports were awarded. Media’s choice was picked by the Association of Finnish Economic Correspondents, investors’ choice by the State Pension Fund (VER) and the NGO’s favourite report by the Baltic Sea Action Group (BSAG).
