Based on a materiality analysis, UPM has established a set of responsibility focus areas to guide its responsibility activities, and determined targets and performance indicators.
The responsibility focus areas, targets and performance indicators were updated in 2015. Some of the targets are continuous and some have been extended to 2030. For environmental targets, the reference year 2008 was maintained to ensure that the new targets remain comparable with previous targets.
In addition to being influenced by the materiality analysis, UPM’s new long term responsibility targets were also influenced by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) published in September 2015.
