The New Plastics Economy is an initiative that brings together key industry stakeholders to create a circular economy for plastics, starting with packaging. UPM Raflatac has signed up to the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment among hundreds of organizations including many of the world’s largest packaging producers, brands, retailers and recyclers, as well as governments and NGOs. Signatories include companies representing 20% of all plastic packaging produced globally.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF) is the global thought leader, an active promoter and enabler of the transition towards a circular economy. UPM Raflatac is participating in two EMF activities: The Circular Economy 100 and The New Plastics Economy.
The New Plastics Economy
Labels matter when it comes to sustainability in packaging and they play a unique role in enabling the circular economy. Through the commitments, UPM Raflatac wants to do its part in reducing unnecessary plastic packaging and set concrete targets to create future innovative circular materials. As collaboration is key, we invite customers, brand owners and other like-minded stakeholders with targets of their own to join us in labeling a smarter future beyond fossils.
