UPM Calculates Carbon Footprint of its Paper Products
Helsinki, Finland, 25 June 2008 – UPM has launched carbon footprint calculations for its paper products to assist its customers to estimate their own carbon footprint. Carbon footprint calculations are available for the customers as part of the Paper Profile.

The basis for UPM’s carbon footprint calculations are the 10 elements of the Carbon Footprint Framework for Paper and Board Products developed by the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI).

UPM’s calculations are based on annual averages of specific paper machine lines. The figures refer to fossil CO2 emissions, which are the most important greenhouse gas emissions of paper industry.

“We want to provide our customers with data in a consistent form to assist them in estimating their own impact on the environment as accurately as possible. The Paper Profile includes essential information on different environmental parameters as well as product composition. The carbon footprint calculation attached to it widens the scope of the document further,” says Päivi Rissanen, environmental manager.
