UPM backing sustainable forestry campaign



21 September 2006 — Helsinki (FIN): UPM has publicly stated its commitment to legal and sustainable forest management.


UPM supports the view of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Finnish Forest Industry Federation (FFIF) that: "Non-governmental organisations and industry can contribute in combating illegal logging by raising awareness among different stakeholders and through stakeholder dialogue."


The company has had an origin of wood tracing system in place since 1996 for the 80,000 truckloads of Russian wood it imports every year.
