Wood fibres, molecules, residues and side streams are the building blocks of the future. UPM has been using them for decades to produce renewable and responsible products. We develop thinner and lighter materials, and constantly challenge ourselves by expanding into new end-user areas. We believe in a future beyond fossils.
Inspired by the limitless opportunities of bioeconomy
The bioeconomy offers new opportunities for value creation and business growth for UPM. Thanks to our global capabilities, innovativeness and strong position in the forest biomass sourcing chain, we are in a unique position in all our businesses to advance a circular economy. At the same time, we see responsibility as a requirement for long-term value creation.
