The urban see them through the window of a plane. The brave dare to wander beyond the asphalt and embrace the age-old truth with all of their senses: Finland is covered in forest. So what does this mean?
We are committed to forest management and wood sourcing practices based on the principles of sustainable forest management accepted worldwide. The objective is to create long-term profitable business in an ethical and responsible manner, taking into account economic, human and social, and environmental aspects.
Knowing the origin of the wood used is a prerequisite for responsible wood sourcing. Using our own tracing systems and certified chain-of-custody management systems we make it possible to guarantee that the origin of wood is always known, all raw materials come from legal and sustainable sources and the quantities of certified wood can be documented. In 2016, 84% of all wood and wood fibre used in UPM's production units came from certified forests.
