Maintaining quality, environmental, and safety ISO certifications is the floor for international manufacturers in today’s complex supply chains. The nature of global supply chains is making certification to ISO standards increasingly important. Customers not only want to know if a product will satisfy their quality requirements, but also want to know about a product’s environmental impacts and the conditions under which it was made.

“Besides providing assurance of corporate responsibility to our customers, working under the ISO system framework for more than two decades has embedded the continuous improvement mindset within UPM Raflatac. The improvements our teams make in quality, environmental performance, and safety translate directly into value for our customers – which is always our ultimate aim,” says Laura Cummings, Director, Health, Safety and Environment, UPM Raflatac.
