HELSINKI, Nov. 15, 2019 (Press Release) -Stora Enso’s Sustainability Report 2018 was chosen as the best in Finland in a competition organised by an independent group of expert organisations.
Stora Enso’s Sustainability Report won Finland’s best sustainability report of the year award. The report was particularly recognised for strong external assurance and describing risks and opportunities. The report was, amongst other things, also praised for the description of the Group’s strategy contributing to a low carbon future.
“We are proud that our efforts in transparent reporting have been acknowledged. Our report reflects our sustained focus on topics that ensure a positive contribution to society and address our long-term opportunities and challenges,” says Noel Morrin, EVP Sustainability at Stora Enso.
“A good report must be highly informative and coherent, but also easy to use and continuously developed. As a sustainability driven company, we value this recognition highly,” says Ulrika Lilja, EVP Communications at Stora Enso.
The annual sustainability report review has been organised since 1996. This year it was carried out in co-operation with Aalto University, Climate Leadership Coalition, Finland's Sustainable Investment Forum (Finsif), Hanken, Nasdaq, The Finnish Association of Auditors, The Association for Environmental Management, the Ministry of the Environment, and the corporate responsibility network FIBS. This year, a total of 47 sustainability reports from different organisations were evaluated.
