Sustainable supply chain

At Metsä Tissue we are committed to sustainability in our supply chain. According to our target, all of our suppliers have signed our Supplier Code of Conduct by 2030. In addition, we regularly conduct sustainability evaluations, which include a self-assessment questionnaire and the setting of development actions for suppliers. The origin of our raw material is important to us. Our target is that 100% of our raw materials are traceable by 2030. Our main raw material, wood, is already 100% traceable.
