Wood Sourcing and Forestry
All wood used in our products comes from sustainably managed forests and from legal sources. All our wood supplies are covered by a third-party verified chain of custody. We aim to use certified fibre to the highest possible degree and to promote a global increase in the use of certified wood. Today, 81% (2018) of the wood we use is certified.
All of UPM’s forests and eucalyptus plantations are certified under the FSC® and/or PEFC™ certification schemes. In addition, UPM has an FSC® and PEFC™ Group Certificate in Finland, both of which are open to private forest owners.
In January 2019 the CDP Forest Program recognised UPM as a global leader on the 2018 Forest A List for timber and timber-based products. The CDP’s report examines steps taken by companies to protect their supply chains and bottom lines against deforestation risks. Read more about the CDP Programme.
