• About us

Innovating for a future beyond fossils

Wood fibres, molecules, residues and side streams are the building blocks of the future. UPM has been using them for decades to produce renewable and responsible products. We believe in a future beyond fossils.


UPM in brief

UPM leads the forest-based bioindustry into a sustainable, innovation-driven, and exciting future across six business areas.

We create renewable and responsible solutions that replace fossil-based materials by making the most of residues and side streams. We rely on renewable and biodegradable raw materials to produce recyclable everyday items and materials.


Thanks to our global capabilities and strong position in the forest biomass sourcing chain, we’re in a unique position to advance a circular economy in all our businesses. Moreover, we’re constantly challenging ourselves by expanding into new end-use areas.

At UPM, we see responsibility as a requirement for long-term value creation and live by our values – trust and be trusted, achieve together, renew with courage.
