Environment

At UPM Raflatac, we leverage our in-house expertise, technology and capabilities to assess the environmental impacts of the products we manufacture. Our holistic approach considers the environmental implications of the film and paper labels, adhesives and liners we sell to our clients.  

We support you in:

  • Assessing the environmental impacts of labeling products
  • Implementing responsible sourcing
  • Reducing, recycling and reusing waste
  • Increasing the efficiency of production processes
  • Optimizing logistics
  • Developing new products and services
  • Responding to customer requests and informing brand owners about the environmental choices that are available to them.

Turn waste into a resource

Using raw materials efficiently is one of the biggest challenges facing the label industry. UPM Raflatac’s goal is to minimize solid waste and maximize the reuse of raw materials. Learn more about our RafCycle waste management concept.

Ensure responsible sourcing

UPM Raflatac purchases raw materials from suppliers all over the world. To ensure responsible sourcing, we have developed a framework that is based on the company’s code of conduct and corporate responsibility principles. In our day to day work, our emphasis on using materials effectively is demonstrated by our continual efforts to improve operational performance.

Choose from a wide range of forest-certified label products

UPM Raflatac’s chain-of-custody system tracks certified material from the forest to the final label construction. It provides third-party verification that the wood used in labeling products originates from responsibly managed forests. UPM takes part in all major forest certification programs, including FSC® and PEFC™. Follow the chain of custody for forest products.
