UPM and ZERO started cooperation in Oslo to promote green shift in the transport and petrochemical sectors.
UPM and ZERO started cooperation in Oslo to promote green shift in the transport and petrochemical sectors.

With the aim of promoting green shift in the transport and petrochemicals sectors, UPM Biofuels and the Zero Emission Resource Organisation have started a cooperation. The objective is to create a predictable long term operating environment for sustainable, advanced biofuels to enable climate change mitigation in transport with renewable fuels. The cooperation also aims to enhance knowledge of sustainable fossil-free bioproducts, such as bioplastics, as an important climate solution for example in the packaging and labelling industries. The work is conducted through continuous dialogue with policy officials and decision makers to promote the transition towards a wider bioeconomy.


Zero Emission Resource Organization
 

"ZERO is a Norwegian environmental organisation that focuses on greenhouse gas reduction through promotion of new technologies enabling emission-free energy solutions without harming the environment. ZERO and UPM Biofuels share the same vision and therefore we see great value in this cooperation," says Kåre Gunnar Fløystad from ZERO.
 
UPM and ZERO support advanced biofuels and sustainable bioproducts, which considerably reduce greenhouse gas emissions during their lifecycle from raw material to end product when compared to fossil fuels and products.



Sustainable low emission solutions

 

"The cooperation with ZERO is a great opportunity to jointly promote sustainable low-emission solutions for the transport and petrochemical sectors, and support the transition towards both circular and bioeconomy. Wood-based UPM BioVerno renewable diesel and naphtha are great examples of drop-in fuels replacing fossil fuels and significantly reducing both greenhouse gas and tailpipe emissions," says Maiju Helin, Head of Sustainability and Market Development at UPM Biofuels. "UPM's wood-based naphtha also works well as a feedstock for bioplastics and other biomaterials production."

There is an urgent need for various climate solutions. Sustainable development is all about gradual change towards a cleaner climate, and renewable sources of energy and sustainable production methods are key in reducing our ecological footprint. As changes in infrastructure, production systems and consumer behaviour are slow, policy support needs to have a clear direction and continuity. UPM is committed to growing its sustainable product offering for various sectors and therefore engages with civil society to promote the change towards environmental friendly bioeconomy.
