Annual reporting and GRI

UPM's responsibility reporting dates back to 1996 when we published our first environmental report along with the annual report. Since 2007 we have published an Annual Report with environmental and corporate responsibility reporting integrated into it.


UPM follows sustainability reporting standards  published by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to measure and report on corporate responsibility at Group level. UPM's corporate responsibility reporting in 2020 has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option.

Standard disclosures for 2020 in English with a reference to external assurance in the GRI content index have been externally assured by an independent third party PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy. Furthermore, UPM is committed to the principles of inclusivity, materiality and responsiveness, as defined in the AA1000 AccountAbility Principles Standard (2008).

The index below shows where the GRI Standard disclosures are addressed in the Annual Report (AR), on UPM’s webpage or in the GRI content index. Alignment with the SASB standards can be found here.
