Wood Sourcing and Forestry secures competitive wood and biomass for UPM businesses and manages UPM-owned forests. Approximately onesixth of UPM's wood consumption comes from company forests. At the end of 2015 UPM owned 704,000 hectares of forest in Finland. All of UPM's own forests are certified. UPM also offers a wide range of wood trade and forestry services to forest owners and forest investors. Real estate development is a continuous process within UPM. UPM sells non-strategic forest land and estates that offer an attractive alternative value.
UPM's biocomposites combine natural fibres and plastic. The business unit develops, manufactures, markets and sells high quality composite products and granulates for a wide range of consumer and industrial applications.
UPM Biochemicals has extensive know-how of lignin-based products. The business unit develops wood-based chemical building blocks, performance chemicals and biofibrils.
