Actively seeking sustainable solutions

We deliver more out of less by continuously reducing the environmental impact of our products throughout their entire lifecycle. We use certified management systems as a tool to manage and improve our environmental performance.


We manage our environmental impacts systematically

UPM’s environmental management is based on continuous identification of our environmental impacts and our ambitious targets for continually improving our performance. We also challenge our suppliers to be innovative and actively contribute to achieving our targets.

So far, we have succeeded in our efforts to create more out of less – but we believe we are only at the beginning of our journey. We see the circular economy as the business model of the future. In essence, this means replacing the current linear take-make-dispose model of resource consumption with a sustainable system based on the use of renewable, recyclable resources – in other words, making more out of less.
