Ecolabels and certificates

Ecolabels and certificates guarantee our high enviromental standard. UPM's environmental and social responsibility certificates and position statements can be found using our Certificate Finder tool.


Environmental labels support our customers in making responsible choices and give them a competitive advantage. The majority of our products are independently certified. The EU Ecolabel covers the product’s whole lifecycle, and is thus the most comprehensive ecolabel available on the market. We are the largest producer of graphic and copying papers that have been awarded the EU Ecolabel.

The EU Ecolabel is intended as a guide for consumers who want to buy environmentally friendly paper products. For buyers, the EU Ecolabel guarantees that the raw material has been acquired in a responsible manner, and the chemicals used in the paper production process, energy consumption, production emissions and waste treatment fulfil the strictest environmental requirements.  

UPM's papers are also offered with PEFC™ or FSC® Chain of Custody certification. These forest certifications promote sustainable forestry. They verify that fibre used for paper products is sourced from well managed forests.
