We strive to continuously improve our sustainability performance and reporting, and to keep investors informed of our progress, ambitions and future direction.
Opportunities and challenges
global pool of Socially Responsible Investors (SRIs) and the incorporation of Environmental,
Social and Governance (ESG) analysis into investment decision-making is growing.
This encourages companies to be more sustainable in their operations while also
delivering a return on shareholders investment. We believe that only
sustainable operations can ensure long-term financial success.
Stora Enso’s Investor Relations are guided by several laws and regulations, including

How we work
Enso’s major shareholders are long-term investors who value sustainable
business practices and closely follow our sustainability performance and
We actively maintain open dialogue with our investors on ESG matters through face-to-face
meetings, conference calls, seminars, and webcasts. We also regularly share
information on our sustainability performance with shareholders in our Interim
and Annual Reports, stakeholder letters, web updates, and investor newsletters.
In 2016, our Investor Relations function organised 13 investor meetings focusing on ESG-related topics. In total, approximately 60 investor representatives participated in these meetings.
During 2016, we made sustainability information is more widely available on our website to better serve our various stakeholder groups. This also involved further prioritising our participation in the ESG index and ratings schemes that are most material to our investors.
