UPM has been included in the CDP Climate A List. UPM is featured in the CDP’s climate change program for the eight years in a row for its climate actions and transparent climate reporting.
    “Apart from actions, also the quality of reporting matters. Investors and other important stakeholders use our public data to evaluate how well we tackle global climate challenges and changes in market conditions and comply with related regulations”, says Sami Lundgren, vice president, Environment & Responsibility. “We are committed to the continuous improvement of our operations and are regularly monitoring the achievement of our climate-related targets.”
   UPM’s climate targets for 2030 include reducing the fossil fuel, carbon dioxide emissions from own combustion and purchased electricity by 30% as well as reducing acidifying flue gases by 20%.
   Lundgren added:“One example is the UPM Shotton paper mill in the UK, where UPM has invested in a condensing turbine power plant. The plant turns excess low-pressure steam into renewable energy.  Another example is the Otepää plywood mill in Estonia, where the construction of a new biomass power plant was completed this year.”
