The programme will cover UPM’s spearheads for growth, sustainability as a value driver, and performance in the uncertain business environment.
UPM has chosen three focus areas for growth. Our competitive pulp mill investment in Uruguay represents a significant step to our pulp business and UPM’s future earnings. Specialty packaging materials offer attractive growth opportunities, further enhanced by product innovation. Biofuels and biochemicals represent large growth markets, by decarbonising traffic and providing consumers with more sustainable products. Our transformative biorefinery investment in Germany creates a completely new business in biochemicals.
Sustainability is the only solid foundation for long-term value creation. We have committed to UN’s Business Ambition for 1.5°C pledge and will contribute to climate change mitigation through climate-positive forestry and land use, significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions and sustainable products that replace fossil-based materials.
UPM has a very strong balance sheet and an agile and efficient operating model. Therefore, we are prepared for the current uncertainty and can continue implementing our growth strategy.
The agenda and the webcast registration details will be published on a later date on UPM’s website.
