The best Sustainability Reports in Finland are among the best in the world
Stora Enso’s Sustainability Report won the award for Finland’s best sustainability report of the year. The report was particularly recognised for being comprehensive, strongly linked to the company’s core business, and it excelled in all areas of the competition. In addition, Stora Enso’s report was the winner of the stakeholder category, this year chosen by the Finnish Climate Fund.
‘Sustainability performance is high on the agenda for all our stakeholders and we are proud to be acknowledged for our reporting. In addition to being informative and transparent, good reporting needs to be engaging and compelling, while easy to absorb. We constantly develop our reporting to reflect sustainability contributions, as well as pursuing our ambitions and meeting new challenges,’ says Annette Stube, EVP Sustainability at Stora Enso.
Additionally, the awards were handed out in four categories, which are climate change, biodiversity, human rights, and Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Neste was the winner in the climate change category, Kesko had the best report with regard to biodiversity, S Group was the best company in reporting human rights in its business, and Jalofood (Soya) was the best in the category of SMEs.
The sustainability report review has been organised since 1996. This year it was carried out in cooperation with Aalto University School of Business, 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.
