Sustainability

​At UPM Raflatac, we state that labels matter. By this we invite customers, brand owners, and consumers to join us in making sustainable choices for a smarter future.

Sustainability means innovation and action 

Labels are everywhere and on everything we consume. Wrapped around food, beverages, cosmetics and medicines, they build brands, convey important information, and tell stories. As one of the world’s largest suppliers of pressure sensitive label materials, we are fully aware of the environmental aspects of every stage of the label value chain. This is why sustainability is at the core of our business values, and it is why we provide innovative solutions to help our stakeholders be responsible too.

Making labels sustainable requires innovative product design, responsible sourcing, efficient operations, outstanding product performance and sustainable end-of-life solutions. It also involves comprehensive sustainability collaboration with our stakeholders, such as suppliers, label printers, brand owners and the communities we operate in.

Our leadership in sustainability has been recognized by the UN Global Compact Lead and Dow Jones Sustainability Index as part of our parent company UPM.
