Turning waste into a resource
The efficient use of raw materials is one of the main challenges for the labelling industry. Our target is to minimize solid waste and maximize the reuse of raw materials. Our industry-leading capacity for innovation and commitment to sustainability are demonstrated through unique solutions to our customers’ needs.
UPM Raflatac sources raw materials from suppliers all over the world. In order to ensure responsibility in our sourcing activities, we have developed a sourcing framework based on the company’s code of conduct and responsibility principles. Our strong focus on quality is demonstrated by efficient performance throughout our operations.
Wide range of forest certified labelstock products
UPM Raflatac’s chain of custody system tracks certified material from the forest to the final labelstock product, and provides third-party verification that that the wood used in label materials originates from responsibly managed forests. UPM promotes all credible forest certification systems including the two major international schemes: FSC® and PEFC™.
