UPM leads the integration of b​io and forest industries into a new, sustainable and innovation-driven future.

Our company consists of six business areas: UPM Biorefining, UPM Energy, UPM Raflatac, UPM Paper Asia, UPM Paper ENA (Europe & North America) and UPM Plywood. Our products are made of responsibly sourced, renewable raw materials. They offer alternatives to replace non-renewable fossil-based materials.

We develop new innovative and sustainable businesses. Biofuels, biocomposites and biochemicals are based on our extensive know-how and strong position in the forest biomass sourcing and processing value chain.

We live by our values – trust and be trusted, achieve together, renew with courage.

This is Biofore

When we at UPM look into the forest, this is what we see:

- A future where every single wood-based fibre is used innovatively and efficiently.

- A world where bio and forest industries are integrated to create new high quality alternatives to non-renewable materials. Profitably and responsibly.



For us 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.
