UPM Raflatac
Forest Film

Replacing virgin fossil-based film material with renewable wood-based one is now possible.


Looking for a sustainable plastic label?

UPM Raflatac Forest Film™ is an efficient and impactful way to reach your sustainability goals. It’s made from 100% renewable wood-based raw materials in an ISCC certified value chain and it allows you to gradually replace fossil-based film materials. All in all, you don’t have to compromise on sustainability or performance.


Born from the circular economy

We make sure that the raw materials we use are as sustainable as possible. When wood from sustainably-managed forests is processed for pulp, the resin is used to make UPM BioVerno – the raw material in Forest Film.

It’s a 100% renewable alternative for plastics

Forest Film uses the mass-balance approach to replace fossil-based raw materials with renewable ones; so you can make positive climate actions with a truly sustainable packaging solution.

It’s a drop-in solution

Feel the difference, but don’t expect to see it. With Forest Film, you can smoothly replace traditional fossil-based options as it is identical in quality and performance compared to conventional fossil-based films.
