Sustainability report

Stora Enso's Sustainability 2018 covers the company's social, environmental, and economic sustainability performance. You can find the highlights of the year and the online Financial Report at

Sustainability 2018

The report reflects our Sustainability Agenda’s ten sustainability topics, addressed through a common four-level framework:

  • Opportunities and challenges – how our Sustainability Agenda topics are currently affected by external factors and global trends. Please note that our corporate risk management assessment appears in our Financials 2018.
  • Our policies – the relevant strategies and policies we use to address key opportunities and challenges.
  • How we work – the processes, procedures, and systems we use to realise our strategies and policies.
  • Progress – our progress on our sustainability topics during 2018.

GRI index available as a separate PDF file

The GRI index for the report is available as a separate PDF supplement. Stora Enso's Sustainability 2018 corresponds to the "Core" level in the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards.

CO2 data assured at Reasonable Level

The Sustainability 2018 is assured by an independent third-party assurance provider with a level of limited assurance.

For the fourth year running, a level of reasonable assurance has been provided for Stora Enso's reporting on direct and indirect fossil CO2 emissions (scopes 1 and 2). Stora Enso is one of few companies in the world that assure their CO2 reporting for stakeholders at Reasonable Level.
