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.

 

From forests to sustainable products

Our business is based on forests: We grow and harvest forests to create renewable and recyclable materials and products. Innovations that offer alternatives to fossil-based materials are at the core of our Biofore strategy.

Global megatrends drive demand

Global consumer demand is strongly influenced by the needs of the growing middle class. At the same time, it is essential to address the challenges posed by climate change and resource scarcity. With our versatile product portfolio, we are well positioned to meet the growth in consumer demand as well as to enable sustainable choices for our customers and consumers.

 

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.

Molecular bioproducts

Wood-based biofuels and biochemicals offer new growth opportunities and expand our product portfolio. Our advanced biofuels are suitable for all engines and naphtha replaces fossil raw materials in chemical production. Biochemicals will be used in textiles, PET bottles, packaging, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, detergents, rubbers, and resins.

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 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 lifetime.

Low emission-energy

Our energy portfolio consists mostly of energy sources that do not cause fossil CO2 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.
