The circular economy addresses two key global challenges of our time: climate change and the growing scarcity of natural resources. In a circular economy, waste is minimised and renewable resources are used in a sustainable, efficient way.
UPM’s circular approach boils down to three words: More with Biofore. We reuse or recycle virtually all our production waste. We recycle materials and products several times, and we create added value through smart solutions.
Our goal is to minimise waste and maximise reuse. Industrial biotechnology, 3D printing and efficient energy technologies offer us tools to create innovative products and solutions. We do all this to generate economic, social and environmental value for our stakeholders and society.
This is exactly how UPM has operated for many years. We see the circular economy as the cornerstone of a sustainable future.
