ESPOO, Finland, Dec. 4, 2012 (Press Release) -Metsä Board has received one of the WWF Environmental Paper Awards 2012 in the category "Transparency" for listing the majority of its Uncoated Woodfree Papers in WWF's database of eco-rated papers, Check Your Paper.

Amongst those papers listed are Metsä Board's leading brands Data Copy and Modo Papers.

Commenting on the award, Simon Guffogg, Metsä Board's Marketing Director Paper and Pulp said "Customers need to believe in what they are buying. For us at Metsä Board, openness and transparency are the enablers for that belief. We are proud of our products environmental credentials and this award by WWF acknowledges that".

WWF created the WWF Environmental Paper Awards 2012 to give credit to manufacturers and suppliers that post their brands on Check Your Paper, using WWF´s eco-rating method for measuring the environmental footprint of papers. WWF´s Check Your Paper is a global benchmark tool for transparency and understanding the total value chain sustainability of paper.

It enables paper producers and merchants to list their products online and buyers to search transparent information on the environmental footprint of pulp and papers.
