Minimise climate impact
Are you searching for ways to reduce supply chain emissions? UPM Specialty Papers can help you meet your goals. We are continually going above and beyond to shrink our carbon footprint, so you can do the same. That means we’re not only committed to the UN’s 1.5°C climate target, plus a wide range of science-based measures to mitigate climate change. We also aim to reach net zero by 2040, a full decade ahead of the Paris Agreement timeline.
Choose zero deforestation
We are committed to sustainable forestry, enhancing forest biodiversity, and preserving forests as carbon sinks. The fibres we use are all sourced from sustainably managed forests, without exception. And the wood we use is 100% traceable and complies with FSC™ and/or PEFC Chain of Custody.
Lead the way in circularity
Public expectation and regulations are both ramping up the pressure to innovate and implement recyclable options for packaging and labels. As one of the most widely and easily recycled materials on the planet, paper represents the obvious answer. Our wide-ranging expertise in developing recyclable papers suitable for existing fibre recycling streams is backed by equally extensive R&D capabilities.
Safe for food contact
When it comes to protecting the health of your consumers, food safety is non-negotiable. Our packaging papers are suitable for direct food contact and comply with stringent product safety standards.
Up to date
Our product safety experts actively monitor regulatory developments to ensure you remain compliant.
Our packaging grades comply with food contact regulations in Europe (EU 1935/2004, BfR), the USA (FDA), and several national legislations worldwide.
Our mills producing packaging grades are certified according to ISO 22000 - Food Safety Management System.
