Paper is known to have a misconception of being a big contributor to global warming, whilst this may have been the case some years ago we have partnered up with one of the world’s leading paper mills in sustainable production.
Our Earth Paper is produced by UPM in the EU using wood from sustainably managed forests. The UPM Kymi mill at which Our Earth Paper is produced is located along the River Kymi in Kouvola, South East Finland, and includes a pulp mill and a fine paper mill. The paper mill receives their heat and electricity from the integrated pulp mill, which generates renewable energy from biomass and pulp mill residues. The paper mill generates zero waste.
UPM has been listed as the leading forest and paper industry company in the in the Dow Jones European and World Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for the sixth time, and has an AAA rating from the Carbon Discloser Project for its efforts related to climate change, sustainable forestry and water use.
