Sustainability leadership

​As one of the world’s leading producers of self-adhesive label materials, UPM Raflatac has taken up the task of labeling a smarter future. We lead the way in our industry and share our vision with our partners. Together, we develop innovative future solutions that help us to become more sustainable, while improving end product performance and always acting responsibly in the areas we operate in. We have been recognized for our industry leadership by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and invited to join the UN Global Compact Lead.

We foster innovations through sustainability partnerships

Partnering with our customers, brand owners, raw material suppliers and future-oriented industry associations enables us to turn innovations into future solutions and a competitive advantage.

Through our partnerships, we offer inspiring and state-of-the-art sustainability approaches. For example, we ecodesign solutions to foster innovations in the label industry and meet the future needs of brand owners. And, through RafCycle®, we offer recycling solutions to our customers and brand owners for enabling them to give their label waste a new life.

By being a member of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, UPM Raflatac has further reinforced its commitment to a more sustainable world. 

Taking responsibility in communities

We take responsibility for our actions and our impact on society wherever we operate, and we do beneficial work with local communities through collaborative projects in areas such as biodiversity and responsible water use. 

Responsibility targets in our operations 

The UPM Biofore strategy, Code of Conduct and UPM’s 2030 responsibility targets set the framework for UPM Raflatac. UPM Raflatac is committed to focusing on improving their responsibility across all areas including good business governance, diversity and inclusion, social responsibility, health and safety, and sustainable use of resources.

For UPM Raflatac employees, the Biofore Site™ concept provides a transparent framework for creating a culture of responsibility and sustainability in our factories and terminals. It also serves as the platform for continuous development towards meeting our 2030 responsibility targets and the requirements of ISO 14001.
