STORA ENSO OYJ PRESS RELEASE 26 November 2015 at 9.00 EET

 Stora Enso’s Global Responsibility Performance Report 2014 has won four awards in the independent annual sustainability report review, commissioned by FIBS, Finland’s leading non-profit corporate responsibility network. The four awards include the best sustainability report, best reporting on Human Rights and on Tax Footprint and the top choice of a consortium of Finnish corporate sustainability students.

In FIBS’ review Stora Enso’s report was particularly acknowledged for its extensive and transparent sustainability reporting, with a special focus on reporting related to the target-oriented management of human rights.

“We are proud of this achievement, as transparent reporting is a key element in our sustainability work,” says Noel Morrin, EVP Sustainability at Stora Enso. “However, good reporting requires continuous development. Going forward, we are aiming to set the bar even higher.

Organised this year for the 20thtime, the FIBS review covered a total of 173 sustainability reports, including reports produced by all of the companies listed on Nasdaq OMX Helsinki together with selected reports from the private and public sector.
