UPM Raflatac launches FSC certified paper face stocks

UPM Raflatac has launched a new range of FSC certified paper facestocks for the Americas market.

The new FSC certified products include paper wine label materials, semi-gloss, thermal transfer and direct thermal, among others.

Tyler Matuseveich, sustainability manager, Americas, UPM Raflatac, said: ‘Only about 10 percent of the world's forests are certified today and much work remains to be done to promote responsible sourcing. UPM Raflatac is continuously striving to have the most sustainable label materials portfolio in the industry. 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. We invite you to partner with us to achieve your sustainability targets for sustainably sourced packaging materials.’ 

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.
