Our Biofore strategy in action

UPM's focus areas, targets and performance indicators cover three areas: economic, social and environmental responsibility.

Supporting UN Sustainable Development Goals

To guide our responsibility actions, we have defined a set of focus areas, performance indicators and targets for 2030. The targets are based on UPM’s materiality analysis and they support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We review our targets annually and publish all results in our Annual Report. See highlights below.

Getting better all the time

Looking back over the past decade, UPM has achieved a clear improvement in its financial performance.  We have also made rapid headway in our social and environmental performance.
