UPM Raflatac Introduces New Range of FSC Certified Paper Face Stocks for the Americas Market
UPM Raflatac's new FSC certified products include paper wine label materials, semi-gloss, thermal transfer, direct thermal, and more.
June 13, 2019 - UPM Raflatac announced a new range of FSC certified paper face stocks for the Americas market. This announcement takes UPM Raflatac one step closer to achieving its target of sourcing wood fiber from 100 percent certified sources by the year 2030.
The new FSC certified products include paper wine label materials, semi-gloss, thermal transfer, direct thermal, and more. With more and more brands unveiling ambitious sustainability targets for their packaging materials, UPM Raflatac's portfolio of FSC certified products can support them in achieving targets for sourcing paper products from certified sustainably managed forests.
FSC certification by the Forest Stewardship Council is an internationally recognized mark of well-managed and sustainable forest operations. UPM Raflatac has supplied FSC certified products since 2008 and actively co-operates with the organization around the world. The aim is to increase the use of certified wood in the label production processes and to promote awareness of the forest certification and related responsibility issues.
“Only about 10 percent of the world's forests are certified today and much work remains to be done to promote responsible sourcing,” says Tyler Matuseveich, Sustainability Manager, Americas, UPM Raflatac. “In offering a new range of high quality face stocks on FSC certified papers for the Americas market, we can assure our customers we always know the origin of fiber and can trace it back to the forest it came from.”
