​A future beyond fossils

Wood fibres, molecules, residues and side streams are the building blocks of the future. UPM has been using them for decades to produce renewable and responsible products. We develop thinner and lighter materials, and constantly challenge ourselves by expanding into new end-use areas. We believe in a future beyond fossils.

The bioeconomy offers new opportunities for value creation and business growth for UPM. Thanks to our global capabilities, innovativeness and strong position in the forest biomass sourcing chain, we are in a unique position in all our businesses to advance a circular economy. At the same time, we see responsibility as a requirement for long-term value creation.

Our products are made of renewable raw materials and they’re recyclable. We continue to replace fossil materials in various use-cases. UPM’s sustainable and safe solutions are already changing businesses and lives around the world.

Innovating for a future beyond fossils
