Financial success through sustainable operations

Investors

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
The 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 the EU’s Market Abuse Regulation (MAR), the Finnish Securities Markets Act, Nasdaq rules in Helsinki and Stockholm, and the standards of the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority.

How we work
Stora Enso’s major shareholders are long-term investors who value sustainable business practices and closely follow our sustainability performance and reporting.

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.

Progress

The focus was on Stora Enso’s sustainability strategy and activities. In total, approximately 40 investor representatives participated in these meetings.
