We deliver renewable and responsible solutions and innovate for a future beyond fossils.

We offer a wide range of sustainable and safe products for everyday use. Products are made of renewable and biodegradable materials and are recyclable. Have a look at our offering!


Global functions

Value adding, efficient and responsible Global Functions are an important part of UPM. Global functions bring professional view from their areas of expertise, enabling the businesses to succeed while navigating the complex operating environment. Read more about our biggest global functions below. In addition to the functions presented here we also employ professionals in e.g. legal, strategy, and internal audit teams.


On the right path

Wood fibres, molecules, residues and side streams are the building blocks of the future. We develop thinner and lighter materials and reuse or recycle residues and side streams. We constantly challenge ourselves by expanding into new end-use areas. We believe in a future beyond fossils.

Global megatrends are driving demand for sustainable and safe products

The right direction is found in the forest. Renewable wood and recyclable products reduce the world’s dependency on fossil-based and other non-renewable raw materials. Our entire business is based on sustainable forestry. We plant 100 tree seedlings every single minute. Forests clean the water, purify the air and act as carbon sinks.


Fibre products

We provide responsibly produced fibre-based products that are used in packaging, hygiene and tissue products, often replacing non-renewable raw materials. We use renewable wood fibre as the main raw material for our graphic papers, specialty packaging materials, labelling materials and biocomposite products.

Wood products

Most of our wood products are used in construction. Plywood and sawn timber are also used in furniture and parquet, packaging and vehicle floors, as well as being used as insulation in carriers used for liquefied natural gas. Wood products offer a solution that is healthy, safe and mitigates climate change. Our wood-based products retain the carbon bound in wood throughout their lifecycle.

Molecular bioproducts

Biofuels and biochemicals offer new growth opportunities beyond our current product portfolio. The fuel and chemical markets are huge, but are mainly supplied by fossil raw materials, representing a quickly increasing demand for sustainable alternatives. UPM has excellent advantages in developing its biomolecule businesses: a competitive forest industry platform, sustainable feedstocks and land use, biomass processing technologies and intellectual property rights.

Low emission-energy

Our energy portfolio consists mostly of energy sources that do not cause fossil carbon dioxide emissions. We generate hydropower, nuclear power and biomass-based energy in the mills’ combined heat and power plants. Energy efficiency means that energy consumption and emissions are continuously reduced.
