UPM is in the process of invoking a chain of custody covering all forest certification strategies. The project is being carried out on a global basis and will permit the company to communicate the real share of certified fibre in its products.

"UPM’s Nordland paper mill is a good example of the restriction of the present chain of custody systems. The mill uses pulp from both PEFC and FSC certified sources, but the Nordland mill’s PEFC chain of custody means that the FSC material is classified as non-certified. With this new model UPM will be able to tell its customers the real percentage of certified fibre in their products," said Jaako Sarantola, senior vice president, forestry and wood sourcing.
