UPM has developed a highly attractive project portfolio in the strongly growing Asian economies of China and Pakistan. Our portfolio spans across different sectors and comprises both pioneer renewable energy projects and excellent emission reduction projects producing large amounts of quality carbon credits.
You are most welcome to learn more about our exemplary sustainable energy project activities and our market leading carbon assets by choosing one of the two categories below:
Carbon Offset Projects
Our outstanding portfolio of professionally managed carbon offset projects delivers the carbon credit streams asked for by compliance as well as voluntary buyers. All our emission reduction activities have tangible sustainability effects in the host countries and are certified by premier international carbon market standards like the Clean Development Mechanism or the Gold Standard.
Renewable Energy Ventures
Together with long-term strategic partners, UPM has invested in carefully selected innovative renewable energy projects and ventures that are well adapted to the specific requirements of the energy markets in the target regions and are designed to generate very good returns on investment even without an additional emissions trading component.
In November 2013, our Gold Standard Majority Portfolio Pledge was officially recognised by the Gold Standard Foundation, our promise to stock more than 50% of our carbon credit portfolio with Gold Standard certified carbon credits. The Pledge illustrates our commitment to develop the highest quality offset projects, and to provide our clients with rigorous carbon calculations, industry-leading transparency and the highest-quality clean energy and carbon credits.
