"Promoting sustainable forest management and ensuring the sustainability of biofuels production are extremely important from both biodiversity and climate point of view. We are very pleased that UPM contributes to the transition from fossil fuels to biofuels produced outside food chain. Sustainability aspects in this transition need to be carefully evaluated, which is also one of the main contents of our cooperation," says Liisa Rohweder, secretary general of WWF Finland.

UPM aims to become a major player in advanced, high-quality biofuels for transportation. Compared to fossil fuels, the wood-based biofuels developed by the company will considerably decrease the dependence of transportation on fossil fuels.
