SCA recognized as world leader for corporate action on ending deforestation

SCA has been acknowledged as a global leader for its sustainable use of timber products  with a position on the Forest A List for timber by the leading environmental non-profit, CDP. SCA is one of only eight companies to have achieved a commodity A grade.

This list features businesses that are on the path to sustainably sourcing or producing timber commodities, which is among the four key commodities linked to global deforestation.
Information provided by 175 large companies has been independently assessed against CDP’s scoring methodology – developed in collaboration with leading peers and experts in corporate deforestation risk management – and ranked accordingly by CDP’s lead scoring partner, the South Pole Group. SCA is one of eight companies that have been awarded an A grade for its deforestation management efforts, earning a position on this exclusive global list of corporate leaders.

During 2016, CDP has released three global ratings on how large companies address risks and opportunities associated with Climate Change, Water Management and Forest & Fiber. SCA has been recognized as a global leader and included in the A list in all three ratings.

This result is a recognition of the work done by many SCA colleagues working with FSC®/PEFC™, forest management, wood, pulp and fiber sourcing.

SCA is celebrated in CDP’s new report “Revenue at risk: Why addressing deforestation is critical to business success”. It has been produced at the request of 365 investors with US$22 trillion in assets by CDP. The report highlights the critical challenges facing businesses in building deforestation-free supply chains for cattle products, palm oil, soy and timber commodities.
