The Remuneration statement has been prepared in accordance with the Finnish Corporate Governance Code of 2015 (the “Code”). The Code is available at cgfinland.fi. Stora Enso’s Corporate
Governance also complies with the Swedish Corporate Governance Code (“Swedish Code”) which has been applicable to Stora Enso as a foreign company from 1 January 2011, with the exception of the
deviations listed in Appendix 1 of the Corporate Governance Report. The deviations are due to differences between the Swedish and Finnish legislation, governance code rules and practices, and in these cases Stora Enso follows the practice in its domicile. The Swedish Code is issued by the Swedish Corporate Governance Board and is available at corporategovernanceboard.se.
