UPM Raflatac is moving all high-volume Raflabrite product combinations to FSC certification. Supplying certified papers gives label converters the opportunity to offer products from sustainably managed forests without a price premium.

“We‘re making forest certification the standard for our main paper product range,” says Neil Fedorowycz, director for prime business segment at UPM Raflatac in Europe. “This is our direct response to growing demand from customers and major retailers for certified products and improved sustainability credentials for their packaging.”

The FSC chain of custody tracks certified material from the forest to the final labelstock product, and guarantees that the wood raw materials are from responsible sources. UPM aims to maximize the use of certified fiber and promotes a global increase in the use of certified wood. UPM promotes all credible forest certification schemes including the two major international ones, FSC®, the Forest Stewardship Council, and PEFC, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes.

Details about the Raflabrite product combinations and new sales codes are available at UPM Raflatac’s website.
