UPM receives all-time high score of 84/100 in EcoVadis, qualifying for Platinum rating

Are you looking for verified insight into the sustainability performance of your suppliers? We are happy to tell you that UPM has again received a Platinum medal in EcoVadis CSR rating. The rating means you can be confident that UPM is a responsible partner committed to sustainability both in our operations and regarding our suppliers.

The EcoVadis rating ranks us among 1 per cent of over 75,000 companies assessed globally. It is based on a comprehensive assessment of our responsibility performance in four categories: environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. The rating’s criteria are based on international standards, such as Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and ISO 26000.

At UPM Specialty Papers, we receive hundreds of responsibility related inquiries annually from our customers. The EcoVadis rating is an important tool for verifying performance.

“We encourage customers to work together with us to improve sustainable supply chain management for both sides. Our supplier management systems, environmental policies, Codes of Conduct and working conditions at our paper mills are important aspects in customers’ supply chain management. The EcoVadis assessment gives customers a comprehensive overview of our operations and thus increases trust,” says Jue Wang, Senior Environmental Specialist at UPM Specialty Papers.

UPM is committed to a sustainable supply chain and production. We are a member of the Together for Sustainability (TfS) alliance, which requires member companies to achieve a high EcoVadis rating. This year, UPM’s score rose to an all-time high of 84/100.
