Responsible supply chains - doing the right thing together

 

Responsible sourcing is part of our everyday operations. Ensuring the responsibility of the supply chain forms the foundation of all our activities.

Co-operation with suppliers, transparent requirements and improving our own production ensure responsible and sustainable products for our customers.

In addition to having strong internal procedures, our products are also externally certified. We are equally interested in the environmental, social and economic aspect of responsibility and monitor our partners in all these dimensions.

UPM is seen as a trusted partner and well performing company, and it has also earned external recognition by being ranked in Platinum level in the responsible sourcing assessment by EcoVadis.

Our supplier requirements are transparent. The UPM Supplier and Third-Party Code outlines our minimum requirements for ethical conduct.

Risk assessment

Our supplier risk assessment is systematic. We conduct supplier due diligence risk assessments and detailed questionnaires.
