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.
