SCA was ranked best in the following three categories in the World Wildlife Fund's (WWF) Environmental Paper Company Index (EPI) 2011: Environmental Footprint Overall, Tissue and Responsible Fibre Sourcing.

SCA has been praised for transparency and for disclosing information on environmental performance.

"By allowing evaluation of their environmental data, SCA shows that they take environmental and social responsibility seriously," says Emmanuelle Neyroumande, manager of WWF International's global pulp and paper work.

"SCA's ranking is confirmation that our long-standing sustainability and sourcing strategies, as well as our contribution to meeting global challenges, are on the right course," says Don Lewis, president, SCA Americas. "Our focus on sustainability ensures that our customers not only receive innovative and high-quality products and support to help them to better their businesses, but that they are manufactured by a socially and environmentally responsible company."
