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, 83% (2020) 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 December 2020 CDP recognised us as one of the only ten Triple A List companies globally for our significant actions to tackle climate change and taking actions to ensure sustainable forest management and water security. We were featured on the A List for Climate, Forests and Water out of more than 5,800 companies who were evaluated in 2020.

In February 2021 CDP recognised us also for our engagement with our suppliers to tackle climate change.
