At UPM, environmental management is based on continuous identification of the environmental impact of our operations and the ambitious targets we have set for our performance. To manage and improve our environmental performance we apply certified management systems.
During the past years we have succeeded quite well in our efforts to create more with less. This is, however, not enough for us – we will continue our work to minimise our environmental impact.
We see circular-economy thinking as the business model of the future. This means replacing the current linear take-make dispose model of resource consumption with the sustainable use of renewable, recyclable resources – making more out of less.
The expansion of the UPM Kymi pulp mill strengthens UPM’s position on the growing pulp market. The investments also improve the efficiency of the entire mill integrate: the pulp and paper businesses can independently optimise their production and simultaneously benefit from mutual synergies related to energy, logistics and environmental management.
