Metsä Group has published its Sustainability report 2014.
Metsä Wood provides the premium quality
wood products for our
construction, industrial and
distribution customers. We use
100% traceable wood from northern
forests, a sustainable and renewable
raw material of the finest quality.
Sustainably managed wood is strong,
light and consistent in appearance.
In addition, it has superb acoustic
properties and minimal thermal
expansion. Our products are
manufactured efficiently regarding
raw material, energy and waste.
Metsä Group's highlights of the year 2014 include reducing our CO₂emissions by 36% per product tonne since 2009 and increased energy efficiency. The hard work for a safer workplace paid off and the lost time frequency rate decreased by 15%.
This Sustainability Report provides a comprehensive outlook of the most essential sustainability issues in our operations as well as to our stakeholders.
We have divided our renewed sustainability agenda into four main themes that demonstrate how sustainability is an essential element in our products and services, our resource efficient way of operating, forest management and the supply chain, and how we create well-being in
the communities and society we work in.
In addition to the Group-level agenda, the report also reviews business area-related sustainability aspects in more depth.
