Annual reporting and GRI

UPM's responsibility reporting dates back to1996 when we published our first environmental report along with the annual report. Since 2007 we have published an Annual Report with environmental and corporate responsibility reporting integrated into it.

​UPM uses the G4 Guidelines published by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to measure and report on corporate responsibility at Group level. UPM's corporate responsibility reporting in 2016 has been prepared to meet the GRI G4 'In accordance' - Core option.

Standard disclosures for 2016 in English with a reference to external assurance in the GRI content index have been externally assured by an independent third party  PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy. Furthermore, UPM is committed to the principles of inclusivity, materiality and responsiveness,
as defined in the AA1000 AccountAbility Principles Standard (2008).

The index below shows where the G4 indicators are addressed in the Annual Report (AR), on UPM’s webpage or in the GRI content index .
