This is SCA’s second nomination to Globe Award. Sustainability is an integral part of SCA’s operations and the company’s strategy for growth and value creation. Corporate sustainability is understood as a business approach that generates long-term shareholder value by embracing opportunities and managing risks deriving from economic, environmental and social developments. Sustainability initiatives generate improved competitiveness, reduced cost as well as risk.
The targets address the areas that SCA has identified as keys for business in the long term: water, carbon dioxide, responsible sourcing of raw materials and compliance with the Code of Conduct. SCA has set action plans on how to reach the goals and systematically measures and follows up on performance.
SCA’s tradition of applying a strategic approach to sustainability has made it one of the strongest parameters of the SCA brand and a competitive strength for several of the Group’s product brands. Sustainability is one of the three supporting pillars of SCA’s brand platform.
