Circular economy addresses two of the central global challenges: climate change and scarcity of natural resources. Circular economy invites to minimise waste and to use renewable resources in a sustainable and circular way.
UPM’s circular economy approach crystallises into three words: More with Biofore. We reuse or recycle virtually all production waste, recycle materials and products several times, and create added value through smart solutions.
Our goal is to minimise waste and maximise reuse. New, innovative technologies – such as industrial biotechnology, 3D printing and energy technologies – give new ways to create innovative products and solutions. We do all this to bring economic, social and environmental value to our stakeholders and the society.
This is exactly how UPM has operated for a long time. For us, circular economy is the cornerstone of a sustainable future.
