UPM rated among one per cent of most responsible suppliers globally

Is your goal to ensure that your trading partners adhere to the same strict sustainability criteria that you do? Choose UPM as your trusted partner for paper. In 2020, UPM was awarded a Platinum medal in EcoVadis CSR rating. This rating ranks us among the top 1% of all 65,000 suppliers assessed globally. 

The platinum metal ensures that you can trust UPM to be a transparent, reliable and responsible supplier committed to sustainable supply chain. The assessment is based both on our performance as a supplier and our requirements for our own supply chain.

EcoVadis' methodology covers four themes: environment, labor and human rights, as well as ethics and sustainable procurement. UPM's received a score of 82/100 which is the highest in the company's five-year-history in the EcoVadis network.

With the EcoVadis platform, trading partners are able to share information regarding sustainability performance, reduce risks and drive innovation in their sourcing activities.
