Strong market position

We are a leading producer of folding boxboards and white kraftliners in Europe, and the world’s largest producer of coated white kraftliners. In the United States, we are the largest supplier of folding boxboard.

We create value for customers globally

Our customers are brand owners, retailers, converters, corrugated box manufacturers and merchants. We create value by helping our customers to advance their business and sustainability targets with our innovative paperboards and services.  

As the volume of packaging grows, the world needs new, sustainable solutions to replace fossil-based materials and improve packaging recyclability. We are constantly innovating to help develop global solutions to the packaging challenges of the future.

Production units

Our eight highly efficient production units in Finland and Sweden are located close to the forests that are the source of our most important raw material: high-quality wood fibres. The high performance of our products is based on our tailor-made pulps and industry-leading technical excellence.


Fresh wood fibres from sustainably managed forests

The pure, fresh wood fibres we use in our paperboards are a renewable resource that we can trace back to their origins in sustainably managed northern European forests.


Leading the way to a fossil-free future

Metsä Board is a forerunner in sustainability. Our paperboards support the circular economy and provide alternatives to plastic: they are light, recyclable and compostable. Our goal is to achieve completely fossil-free production and products by the end of 2030.
