BillerudKorsnas scored particularly high in the field of environment, referring to climate strategy, environmental management systems and environmental reporting. Ethical guidelines and supplier management were also given high scores.

“Sustainability is the very basis of our strategy for sustainable and profitable growth. It is no longer enough to minimise your own environmental impact as companies have done in the past, at BillerudKorsnäs we want to take sustainability further. With our resource efficient and innovative packaging solutions we both can and want to make positive contribution to a sustainable future. I am therefore pleased that our work is recognised and acknowledged internationally today by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index”, says Per Lindberg, President and CEO of BillerudKorsnäs.
