Accounting policies The accounting policies applied to the consolidated financial statements as a whole are described in this section, while the remaining accounting policies are described in the notes to which they relate as UPM aims to provide enhanced understanding of each financial statement area. Further, to provide a better understanding, the accounting choices made within the framework of the prevailing IFRS are described together with the policy. Key estimates and judgements In the process of applying the group’s accounting policies, management has made a number of judgements and applied estimates of future events that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Although these estimates are based on management’s best knowledge, actual results and timing may ultimately differ from previously made estimates. Key estimates and judgement which are material to the reported results and financial position are presented in the following notes.
UPM-Kymmene Corporation (“the parent company” or “the company”) together with its consolidated subsidiaries (“UPM” or “the group”) is a global forest-based bioindustry group. UPM´s large product range covers pulp, graphic and specialty papers, selfadhesive labels, wood based renewable diesel, electricity as well as plywood and timber products. UPM-Kymmene Corporation is a Finnish limited liability company, domiciled in Helsinki in the Republic of Finland. The address of the company’s registered office is Alvar Aallon katu 1, 00100 Helsinki, where a copy of the consolidated financial statements can be obtained. The parent company’s shares are publicly traded on the Nasdaq Helsinki Main Market. These group consolidated financial statements were authorised for issue by the Board of Directors on 27 January 2022. According to the Finnish Companies Act, the General Meeting of Shareholders is entitled to decide on the adoption of the company’s financial statements. 1.2 Basis of preparation UPM’s consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union (IFRS as adopted by the EU) and IFRIC Interpretations. The consolidated financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention, except for forest assets, energy shareholdings and certain other financial assets and financial liabilities, defined benefit plan assets and obligations and share-based payment arrangements which are measured at fair value. The consolidated financial statements are presented in millions of euros, which is the functional and presentation currency of the parent company. Items included in the financial statements of each group subsidiary are measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which the subsidiary operates (“the functional currency”). The amounts within parentheses refer to the preceding year, 2020. Figures presented in these financial statements are rounded and therefore the sum of individual figures might deviate from the presented total figure. In accordance with the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) reporting requirements, UPM has published the Board of Directors' report and the financial statements as an XHTML file. In line with the ESEF requirements, the primary statements of the consolidated financial statements have been labelled with XBRL tags. XBRL tags are not audited.
