2021 was a strong year for UPM. Our earnings returned to strong pre-pandemic levels, and five out of our six business areas surpassed their long-term financial targets. The year was also significant in our strategic growth projects. The annual report provides extensive information on the progress of these growth projects and on our efforts to secure safety of our personnel and ensure performance. We renewed our 2030 social responsibility targets and joined the Climate Pledge, which aims for climate-neutrality by 2040 and to reach the targets of the Paris Agreement 10 years in advance. In 2021, our energy-related CO2 emissions decreased by 8%. As part of our journey towards carbon neutrality, our goal is stop using coal energy by 2030. We create a positive impact and we enable our customers and consumers to make more sustainable choices with our products. Our purpose is to create a future beyond fossils.
