Committed to people and communities
As part of UPM, we strive to support the sustainable development of the societies where we operate. In many locations, we are a significant employer, taxpayer and partner to local entrepreneurs, making positive contributions to the local economy. We apply several precautionary measures to mitigate and remedy potential adverse environmental and social impacts on our surrounding communities.
We believe in engaging in an open dialogue with all our stakeholders, from customers to authorities – not forgetting our own people. Our Code of Conduct establishes the principles of responsible behavior towards all our stakeholders.
Our global presence and growth in new business areas creates many opportunities for us to have a positive impact on people on an international scale. Focus on people is an integral part of everything we do and of our contribution to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
