Climate change is a challenge of the utmost gravity, and companies must join the fight to mitigate its effects. Quick and decisive action is needed. Every action must be based on scientific research, even though there will always be critics who question even science.
A responsible company listens to its stakeholders and seeks out all available information to back up its decision making. The scientific community is one of our stakeholders. Their biggest concerns are anthropogenic climate change and the loss of biodiversity, which are two closely interlinked issues. As the sustainable use of resources is critical for UPM’s future, our climate-related targets and actions have always been based on the latest findings endorsed by the scientific community.
