Shortlisted for award10th of May 2011
Tork tissue and washroom systems manufacturer has been shortlisted for the Globe Sustainability Reporting Award 2011 - one of only companies worldwide to be nominated.
SCA has won several awards for its sustainability policies over the years. Recent accolades include a Global Partner Award from the Forest Stewardship Council, received in November 2010 for its responsible forest management through the FSC certification scheme. And in October 2010 SCA won a New Economy Carbon Leadership Award for its carbon reporting.
"At SCA we consider sustainability in everything we do," said European marketing director Brian Parkinson, "do and set ourselves strict targets for sustainability relating to carbon dioxide, water, raw materials sourcing and social considerations."
The Globe Award is in its fifth year and aims to discover and encourage researchers, innovators, cities and companies that are deemed to be outstanding in sustainable development. Besides the Sustainability Reporting Award other event categories are the Sustainability Research Award, Sustainability Innovation Award and Sustainable City Award. To minimise its carbon footprint, the awards ceremony is being held virtually in Sweden this month.
