Right solution for the application - Proven performance by UPM's WISA-TransGrowing by doing the right thing



Responsible wood material

Wood is the primary building block of plywood. It is also the ultimate natural biomaterial.

All the wood we use are from responsibly managed forests.  For every tree we use, we plant four new tree seedlings for future generations.


Our Forests

UPM Forest Life offers a new, virtual forest experience


Responsibility for environmental performance

Producing more with less wood and energy is good for the environment. Improving energy and material efficiency reduces production costs and gives us a competitive advantage.

Our production is a solid part of our environmental performance and we set our standards high.
