SCA has been ranked number two in a compilation of the world's most environmentally friendly companies

The study was undertaken by EIRIS (Ethical Investment Research Services), a leading provider of independent, global responsible investment research, and The Independent newspaper. Jan Åström, CEO of SCA, is very pleased about the distinction and cites in particular the overall perspective applied by the survey.

"It is a great pleasure to receive this attention for the breadth of our environment work", comments Åström. "We are working consciously with the carbon dioxide issue, and during the past year we reduced our emissions by 4%. But there are also many other areas in which we are making substantial progress, such as waste management, water use and raw material recycling."

In its survey, EIRIS reviewed the entire fibre flow, from FSC-certified forest management to the production process and reuse of products.

According to Patrik Isaksson, Director of Environmental Affairs at SCA, EIRIS include thousands of companies in its analyses.

“EIRIS is one of the leading European players when it comes to socially responsible investment research, with approximately one hundred institutional investors and fund managers among its customers”, says Isaksson.
