​No matter what your business, sustainability is your business. It’s not just an image issue – it’s a business fundamental that must be part of every company culture and practiced daily in today’s new business era.

Everyone wants a good sustainability scorecard, but is this enough? We at UPM think not. We believe in innovating together with our customers to stay ahead of the curve as bold Biofore innovators.

When it comes to sustainable paper, UPM can help you find a solution that’s good for the environment and for your bottom line. For UPM, the two go hand in hand. Eco-design is part of our DNA. We work hard to develop sustainable paper products to meet changing demands.
