For the second year running, Stora Enso’s Sustainability Report 2018 has been included in the top ten sustainability reports globally according to the latest Reporting matters publication by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
In WBCSD’s Reporting matters publication, Stora Enso’s Sustainability Report is recognised as good practice for being clearly aligned with the company’s materiality assessment. The report’s navigation and language also received good feedback for ensuring consistency and conciseness while remaining informative.
“We are proud to see our reporting being recognised as good practice,” says Noel Morrin, EVP Sustainability at Stora Enso. “We believe that instead of reporting on everything, companies should focus on material topics, defined together with key stakeholders. We are happy to see that approach being acknowledged.”
“Good reporting is clear, highly informative, and transparent, and it should be continuously developed. In our report, we strive to share fact-based information about sustainability and our performance while remaining compelling and engaging,” says Ulrika Lilja, EVP Communications at Stora Enso.
“Stora Enso’s 2018 Sustainability Report shows a clear alignment between the outcomes of their materiality assessment and the content of the report. Some particularly strong aspects of the report include the focus on the external environment and the comprehensive disclosure of internal management of material issues across the value chain. We hope other companies will see Stora Enso as an example of good practice,” says Rodney Irwin, Managing Director of Redefining Value, WBCSD.
The WBCSD produces Reporting matters to help improve the effectiveness of non-financial corporate reporting. The report lists Stora Enso’s Sustainability Report as one of the top ten in the world out of the 159 reviewed in the scope of the publication without disclosing the exact rankings.
The Stora Enso Annual Report 2018 consists of Strategy, Financials, Sustainability, Governance, and Summary. All parts of the Annual Report are available in PDF format at storaenso.com/annualreport.
