UPM develops renewable and responsible solutions to reduce the world’s reliance on fossil-based materials. UPM ProFi wood plastic composite (WPC) is the first industrial scale solution for self adhesive label waste. The sustainable decking boards are made mainly from recycled materials and are recyclable.
Our products provide sustainable solutions that meet the challenges and opportunities presented by global megatrends. UPM offers several alternatives for fossil-based materials: fibre products, molecular bioproducts, wood products and low-emission energy.
Non-renewable raw materials can be replaced with sustainably produced fibre-based products. UPM uses renewable wood fibres as the main raw material for graphic papers, specialty packaging, labelling materials and biocomposite products.
Sustainable designed biocomposite
UPM Biocomposites is building a sustainable designed world by turning recycled streams into great products for consumers as well as commercial and industrial end-users, utilizing extrusion technologies. UPM ProFi biocomposite is the best in class sustainable decking made in Europe.
The world is at cross road in terms of how it sees plastic. If the trend continues, in 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish! We will be part of the solution, not the problem. We will build a business that combines our heritage of bringing smart design to outdoor living with the best environmental performance in our sector. We already give a unique 2nd life to thousands of tonnes of label waste. Our purpose is all about taking recycled streams and making them into great products using extrusion technology.
