Thinking sustainability from the get-go

​We are fully committed to helping our customers minimize the impact on the environment by combining our efforts with the entire labelling industry.

Sustainability is a key driver in all our operations. We incorporate good environmental performance into the design of our entire product portfolio, while also constantly expanding our offering of brand new products for a more sustainable business.


Minimizing waste is a big challenge in the labelling industry. UPM Raflatac has developed a unique solution for labelstock waste: the RafCycle® waste management concept.

RafCycle aims to provide the self-adhesive label industry with an environmentally sound alternative for the disposal of labelstock waste from labelstock production, label printing and die-cutting, as well as from label dispensing. With RafCycle, we turn labelstock waste into a resource.

FSC® and PEFC™ certified materials

We offer a wide range of FSC® and PEFC™ certified sheetstock products. The third-party verification assures that the materials come from responsibly managed forests.

Global ISO 14001 environmental certification UPM Raflatac aims to have a global certification for environmental management system in all its production units. Today, all of our factories in the US, Europe, South Africa, China, and Australia have the ISO 14001 environmental certification that demonstrates a commitment to pollution prevention and legal compliance, as well as to continuous improvement.
