UPM and the Guides and Scouts of Finland have initiated a cooperation in order to increase the dialogue and understanding between young people, companies and policy makers especially on

topics concerning climate change and responsibility. UPM finds it important to understand the expectations of its stakeholders and to constantly develop its operations increasingly sustainable.

UPM supports sustainable development and promotes the wellbeing of the communities by participating in numerous community projects as a company. UPM has also supported the Guides and Scouts of Finland in the past, for example, in the Roihu Finnjamboree programme partnership and in the production of the MobiMetsä game. UPM has also made a donation to the Partion ystävät fund to help underprivileged children to take scouting up as a hobby. The new two-year partnership focuses on a long-term collaboration during which several joint projects, for example events and social media campaigns, will be realised. The scouts will also be provided with material derived from renewable resources to utilise in scout camps and events.
