It is fantastic news that we once again are acknowledged for our sustainability ambitions and results. We strive for high performance in all aspects of sustainability, but it is also important that we provide relevant and accurate information to our stakeholders. Here we get noted for doing the right thing

Of the 95 companies analysed, the study shows that BillerudKorsnäs obtains a shared first place in living up to its sustainability promises. In the top, BillerudKorsnäs is one of few companies that do more "walk" than "talk". Malin Ljung Eiborn explains that this is a result of several ongoing efforts in the area of ​​sustainability:

"In recent years, we have been working hard to reach our climate goals and to phase out the remaining percentages of fossil fuels in our production. We have also seen good results from our work for a more diversified and equal workplace. Thanks to the support from our leadership, we can continue to take the lead in challenging conventional packaging for a sustainable future."

Last week, another news was released that BillerudKorsnäs continues to keep its leading position in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, meaning that it is ranked as one of the 10 percent most sustainable companies in the world.
