​Lower carbon footprint

Cellulose fibre composite UPM Formi reduces the use of non-renewable resources. Chemical pulp is a first-class raw material with consistent quality. As a natural Biofore product, it consists of virtually pure cellulose fibres. Recyclable pulp, produced from renewable raw materials, generates renewable energy in the production process. Oil-based plastics are replaced with cellulose fibres, leading to a lower carbon footprint. UPM Formi results in a reduced environmental impact compared to non-renewable materials.

​Certified end products from certified raw material

Forests are one of our most valuable natural resources. They play a key role in maintaining biodiversity and balancing climate change, and provide shelter, food and energy for wildlife and human beings. UPM operates according to principles of sustainable forest management: the origin of wood is always known, and good forest management practices are promoted. All wood supplies are covered by a third-party verified chain of custody. UPM uses certified fibre to the highest degree possible and promotes a global increase in the use of certified wood.
