Sustainability is at the core of our business. This is why we develop innovative packaging solutions to help you to reach beyond your sustainability goals.
Sustainability means continuous improvement
Forest Positive packaging
The future formula for sustainable labeling is Forest Positive. Our unique forest life cycle approach goes way beyond deforestation to actively enhance natural capitals. It’s carbon positive, which means our source forests can absorb up to double the amount of carbon dioxide emitted during the production process. This approach delivers positive benefits in terms of carbon absorption, biodiversity, resource optimization, and sustainable forest management.
Our source forests can absorb up to double the amount of carbon dioxide emitted during the production process. That’s up to 20% more carbon positive than our standard range.
Positive for nature
Our unique forest lifecycle approach not only ensures net zero deforestation but is proven to actively promote biodiversity, improve water quality, and enhance the ability of our forests to absorb CO2 over time.
By optimizing raw material efficiencies, UPM Raflatac RAFNXT+ label range uses less energy and water while generating less waste during its lifetime compared to standard labels.
All of our RAFNXT+ range is from sustainably managed forests certified to FSC or PEFC and delivered via third party verified chain of custody.
