Jan. 10, 2024 - UPM Raflatac announced that all papers sourced by the company, whether used as a face paper or a release liner in its labeling materials, are now certified under a credible third-party forest certification scheme.
Having all papers certified is one of UPM Raflatac's 2030 responsible sourcing and climate targets, which was now achieved six years ahead of time.
"Reaching our 2030 target this far in advance is a significant milestone that we could not have achieved without the support and close collaboration of our suppliers, and the drive and commitment of our employees," said Maria Seppälä, VP Sourcing, UPM Raflatac.
UPM Raflatac pointed out that the quickly evolving regulatory environment puts a growing pressure on companies to improve the traceability of their raw materials as well as responsible sourcing practices. By having all its papers certified under FSC™ (FSC C012530), PEFC (PEFC/02-31-196) or PEFC-endorsed forest certification systems, UPM Raflatac can support its customers in achieving their responsible sourcing targets.
"Third-party forest certification is one important element in our responsible sourcing approach, combined with supplier assessment and development activities, as well as continuous risk monitoring and management," Seppälä said.
UPM Raflatac offers high-quality self-adhesive paper and film products including label materials, graphics solutions and removable self-adhesive products.
