UPM follows sustainability reporting standards published by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to measure and report on corporate responsibility at Group level. UPM's corporate responsibility reporting in 2017 has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option. Standard disclosures for 2017 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).
