SCA Prudhoe Mill retains world’s most ethical ranking

Prudhoe-based tissue maker SCA has been acclaimed as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the eighth year in a row.

SCA is the largest consumer tissue company in the UK and Ireland and its mill on Princess Way in Prudhoe is one of six paper mills across the UK.

Last year alone, 66 per cent of UK households bought SCA-branded products, such as Velvet, Plenty, Cushelle, Bodyform and TENA.

The World’s Most Ethical Companies rankings recognise those companies who demonstrate superior achievements in transparency, integrity, ethics and compliance.

The recognition comes from the prestigious Ethisphere Institute, whose chief executive officer, Timothy Erblich, said: “SCA joins an exclusive community committed to driving performance through leading business practices. We congratulate everyone at SCA for this extraordinary achievement.”

As part of its commitment to running an ethical business, SCA places a strong focus on achieving the global sustainability goals that are set out in its newly-published 2014 Sustainability Report.

The responsible and sustainable management of resources is a key part of SCA’s business strategy, with clear and measurable sustainability targets set out in the report. The company aims to combat climate change and minimise its impact on the environment through a combination of new innovations, technology and efficiency gains.

Prudhoe Mill site manager Richard Sutcliffe commented: “SCA places strong emphasis on corporate responsibility and we are honoured to be named one of the world’s most ethical companies for the eighth consecutive year.

“This recognition reflects the trust we strive to earn each day from our customers, consumers and business partners, and how our employees manage our operations in a responsible way.”
