UPM has consistently improved its financial, social and environmental performance in recent years. Our business model, performance culture and effectiveness in capital expenditure have delivered excellent results. We continue to aim higher.

Limitless opportunities of bioeconomy

In the coming decade, changing consumer behaviour globally and new middle-class consumers in emerging markets will both create remarkable new demand but also raise the bar for businesses when it comes to responsibility. Answering this demand growth with sustainable and safe solutions provides limitless value creation opportunities for UPM's businesses today and in the future.

Aiming higher with continued transformation and earnings growth

UPM is in better standing than ever. Over the coming years, we can allocate more capital to growing and transforming the company while simultaneously distributing attractive dividend to our shareholders and maintaining headroom in our strong balance sheet.
