Committed to building a sustainable future

We are one of the leaders in the bioeconomy, integrating the bio and forest industries and creating new sustainable business opportunities for the future.

Responsibility is about protecting and creating value

For us, acting responsibly means much more than taking care of the environment. At UPM, responsibility is about protecting and creating value – protecting nature and providing smart and sustainable products and solutions. They create economical value and other benefits for all our stakeholders and the society.

Our commitment to responsibility

Our Biofore strategy is based on the versatile use of renewable wood biomass, combined with innovation, resource efficiency and responsibility.

Governance and management

The company’s Biofore strategy and Code of Conduct lay the foundation for responsible and sustainable business operations across our six business areas.

Principles and targets

We have set a series of responsibility principles and determined targets that cover all three areas of responsibility; economic, social and environmental.


Transparency and openness with stakeholders are an essential part of corporate responsibility. Third-party-verified reporting promotes transparency and helps us to improve our performance.
