Certificates and certified management systems

At Metsä Fibre, we use our management systems to effectively assess our performance and continuously improve our operations. They also help us to achieve our strategic objectives, improve our key performance indicators, enhance our sustainability performance, and manage operational risks.

We aim to improve our operations on a continuous basis. We support this aim with certified management systems such as quality, environmental, energy efficiency, and safety systems. The Chain of Custody systems we use enable us to trace the origins of the wood used by Metsä Fibre and to monitor our logistics chain.

90 per cent of the wood we use is certified according to the international forest certification systems FSC® or PEFC (FSC-C002102, PEFC/02-33-21), and all the wood we receive meets the criteria for controlled wood.
