In a global business, all players should be evaluated against fair and balanced criteria. UPM’s approach is highlighted in for example the company’s expansion of EMAS to cover operations in Uruguay and China, and in participation in WWF´s ECPI.  UPM commends WWF’s initiative to widen the scope of the EPCI from fine papers to a wider Graphic paper scope including newsprint.

John Sanderson, Director, Environmental Marketing and Development, UPM

Context info from the company
Compared to the EPCI 2011 evaluation, the scope of Graphic paper has expanded to include magazine papers, and newsprint was included separately. UPM’s targets are set across all products rather than being set separately for each product category. UPM uses its own third party verified environmental product declarations rather than the WWF Paper Scorecard.
UPM produces the following pulp and paper product categories: newsprint, graphic paper, pulp.
