SCA retains position in world's most ethical companies rankings

Published:  13 July, 2015

SCA has been ranked among the Ethisphere Institute's ‘World’s Most Ethical Companies’ for the eighth year in a row.

The rankings recognise companies the Institute says demonstrate superior transparency, integrity, ethics and compliance standards.

Swedish-based manufacturer of wood products SCA Timber, which has an annual output of 2.1 million cubic metres, is part of the SCA Group, which produces forestry, paper and packaging products.

SCA says it places a focus on achieving the global sustainability goals set out in its 2014 Sustainability Report, published in March 2015, as part of its commitment to running an ethical business.

The company says measurable sustainability targets are set out in the report with the overriding aim to combat climate change through a combination of innovation and efficiency gains.

John Griffiths, managing director of SCA Timber Supply UK, said: “SCA places strong emphasis on corporate responsibility and we are honoured to be named one of the world’s most ethical companies for the eighth consecutive year.

“This recognition reflects the trust we strive to earn each day from our customers, consumers and business partners, and how our employees manage our operations in a responsible way.”
