UPM-Kymmene’s Forest Life portal has been named Best Website and won the Issues and Reputation Management category at the European Excellence Awards.

Forest Life, which was named Forest Act of the Year by the Association of Finnish Foresters and Nordea Bank in August, was also recognised in the Ecology and Environment Category.

The European Excellence Awards recognise communications projects and are judged by 30 communications professionals from across Europe.

“The double success of these awards further demonstrates the vision we set out with when developing UPM Forest Life,” said Aili Piironen, issues management director at UPM.

Launched in March, more than 120,000 people have visited the website according to UPM.
