What is responsible sourcing?
Knowing where raw materials come from, how they are produced, and addressing environmental and social issues such as deforestation, human rights, and climate change through choice of suppliers and how we work with them can help ensure that we have a positive social and environmental impact.
UPM has roughly 24,000 suppliers globally covering a broad range of businesses ranging from small local companies to large international corporations based in many different cultures. Managing these issues across such great variety of suppliers requires a consistent approach to responsible sourcing.
At UPM Communication Papers, we use many different raw materials and services to produce our papers. Being committed to taking account of their environmental, social and ethical impacts is an integral part of being a responsible business.
