Our fossil carbon dioxide emissions clearly decreased in 2023 because the market situation and investment shutdowns curtailed production. Lower production also weakened the energy and water efficiency of our production sites. However, we continued to further develop our operations towards fossil free, resource-efficient production. In our wood procurement, we adopted the principles of regenerative forestry.
The occupational accident rate progressed towards the zero accident target. However, there were also severe accidents among the accidents, and we continue proactive safety work.
A joint sustainability target has been agreed with Metsä Group's nine partner suppliers, and thereby our 2030 target has been achieved. Cooperation with the suppliers continues to achieve these set joint targets.
