Management approach

SCA’s overall management approach to economic value creation is based on the premise that maintaining financially sound business operations is dependent on these operations being environmentally and socially sound. At the same time, economic strength and stability is a prerequisite for environmental investments and socially responsible decisions that generate long-term financial growth. SCA’s aim is to achieve maximum value for its shareholders and other stakeholders, with minimum adverse effects. SCA has a number of policies and management systems in place to achieve and follow up its economic value creation. This chapter describes SCA’s work related to its most important economic and financial aspects.
