UPM’s Gold Standard (GS) and CDM certified Sichuan Household Biogas Programme of Activities (PoA) has avoided a total of 5 million tons of GHG emissions by the end of 2019. This is a remarkable achievement towards climate change mitigation.
In 2019, UPM has completed several large transactions with top business and industry leaders worldwide in the voluntary carbon market. More than 1 million carbon credits, most of these premium-quality GS CERs, were purchased by our clients. UPM has established a strong partnership among all stakeholders, linking poor local farmers to responsible private companies from all over the world.
With our mission to help achieving the global Sustainable Development Goals, UPM kept being engaged in sustainable sanitation/waste-to-value, renewable energy and carbon strategy consulting projects. Our projects cover 4 regions in the world, including Asia, Middle-East, Africa and Europe, and 12 countries/territories (Mainland China, Taiwan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Jordan, Lebanon, Ghana, Mali, Burkina-Faso, and Germany).
Going forward, UPM will continue supporting the most vulnerable people and communities to mitigate and adapt to adverse effects of climate change and humanitarian crises.
