Stora Enso has been recognized for leadership in corporate transparency and performance on forests by global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on CDP's annual 'A List'. Based on data reported through CDP's 2023 Forests questionnaire, Stora Enso is one of the very few companies that achieved an 'A' among over 21,000 companies scored.
CDP assess companies based on the comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks and demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets. CDP's scoring for forests is conducted through four commodities: timber, cattle products, soy, and palm oil. Companies need to score an A on at least one of these forest-risk commodities to earn a place on the Forests A List.
"Forests are the foundation for Stora Enso's business as wood represents the largest part of our raw materials. As one of the largest private forest owners in the world, we recognise our responsibility to safeguard forests and nature. We are committed to sustainable forestry and ensuring that our operations do not cause deforestation or depletion of the world's forests," says Toby Croucher, SVP, Sustainability, Stora Enso. "To be included in the CDP Forest A List is a welcome recognition that we are continuing to drive and improve transparent long-term sustainable forest management."
