The carbon footprint of UPM Raflatac’s Linerless products has been certified by the Carbon Trust, a global climate consultancy driven by the mission to accelerate the move to a decarbonised future. The Linerless range carries the CO2 Measured label to demonstrate that UPM Raflatac offers credible calculations in accordance with ISO 14040/44 and PAS 2050.
“UPM Raflatac’s ambition is to go beyond fossils and that means we are focused on reducing the carbon emissions of our products. The carbon footprint of our Linerless products has been calculated and certified by the Carbon Trust which is a way for us to credibly demonstrate to customers that the footprint has been measured accurately. Choosing Linerless is a positive climate action”, tells Robert Taylor, UPM Raflatac’s Sustainability Director.
UPM Raflatac RAFNXT+ range was the world’s first label material verified by the Carbon Trust in 2019. UPM Raflatac now continues its efforts to lead in credible footprint calculations and transparency in the labeling industry with its Linerless range.
“We are pleased to see UPM Raflatac extending the Carbon Trust’s Carbon Measured label to a broader product range”, says Silvana Centty, associate director at the Carbon Trust. “This is a clear indicator of their commitment to providing a high level of transparency, helping their customers better understand the carbon footprint of their overall packaging.”
UPM Raflatac has developed both its assets and products to meet the needs of the fast-growing Direct Thermal (DT) Linerless market. The new production line in Nowa Wieś, Poland will increase the company’s annual production capacity by 100 million m2. UPM Raflatac’s latest DT Linerless innovation UPM Raflatac OptiCut™ is the optimal choice for companies who are looking for clean cutting performance with excellent adhesion and at the same time want to decrease their carbon footprint. The product is available for all major DT Linerless end use environments.
