UPM publishes biodiversity commitment to lead bioeconomy

November 28, 2018 |

In Finland, UPM has published a new biodiversity commitment, which is one of the company’s responsibility targets for 2030. The new commitment and programme will be presented today at the Conference of the Parties (COP14) of the United Nations’ Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), held in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

The aim of the commitment is to continuously improve the diversity of UPM’s own forests in Finland. The company owns 570,000 hectares of forest, and managing these forests sustainably is essential to ensure the supply of wood.

The implementation of the biodiversity target and related actions are monitored by an independent group of researchers in the field. The researchers focus on the suitability of the actions taken and the use and development of measurement methods.
