Sustainable wine labels help you reach your environmental targets

​​UPM Raflatac is a forerunner in sustainability and we work hard to reduce the environmental impact of our products. We also develop sustainable solutions that transform label waste into resources.

We take environmental factors into consideration in both what we do and how we do it. We use the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) method to evaluate the environmental impacts associated with products over their entire lifecycle.

Reducing environmental impact throughout the product lifecycle

The raw materials for our FSC® and PEFC™-certified paper-based products are sourced from certified, responsibly managed forests – your guarantee that the wood raw materials are from sustainable and legal sources. You can proudly display the FSC or PEFC logo on your labels when you use these certified papers, demonstrating your commitment to sustainable forest management.

For our PP and PET products, we’re introducing thinner and lighter products to reduce the environmental burden while maintaining optimal technical performance and maximum aesthetic appeal.

Our washable adhesives increase bottle recyclability, and the release liner materials we use – papers, PET, and PP – are also commercially recyclable. To demonstrate our commitment to product recyclability and reuse, we have recently developed a range of film label materials that meet the Association of Plastic Recyclers' (APR) requirements for PET bottle recycling. These clear and white film label stocks featuring RW85C wash-off adhesive are able to undergo common PET recycling processes without contaminating any of the PET flake by-products. During the washing process, the labels easily separate from the PET container and float, allowing high-value, clean PET flakes to be recovered.

 

UPM Raflatac is an official sponsor of the DBA Design Effectiveness Awards.
