UPM Raflatac Introduces Next-generation Range of Sustainable Labeling

Forest Positive


Forest Positive brings significant benefits for nature because it not only ensures net zero deforestation, but is also proven to promote biodiversity, improve water quality, and enhance the ability of forests to absorb carbon dioxide. The innovative RAFNXT+ range has a carbon potential that is up to 20% more carbon positive than standard paper labels.

RAFNXT+ Range


The RAFNXT+ range optimizes the use of raw materials, using less energy and water, and generating less waste during its lifecycle compared to standard labels. It provides a competitive edge for printers and brand owners alike in terms of both sustainability and efficiency, with fewer reel changes delivering savings in downtime and start-up waste, lower packaging and transportation costs, and increased storage capacity for both raw materials and finished stock.

The new range includes labeling solutions for a wide variety of applications, including retail labeling, labeling of packaged food, and labels for transport and logistics applications.

Jon Lenck, Director, VIP & Prime segment, EMEIA, UPM Raflatac:

“With RAFNXT+, customers can differentiate themselves with our Forest Positive concept and by using labels that are proven to be 20% more carbon positive than standard paper materials.

Furthermore, they can also enhance their productivity thanks to the optimized raw material efficiencies that RAFNXT+ delivers.”


Robert Taylor, Sustainability Director, UPM Raflatac, says:

“Forest Positive is a unique approach to the forest lifecycle that goes far beyond deforestation to actively enhance natural capitals. It’s carbon positive, which means the forests that we choose to source our raw materials from can absorb up to double the amount of carbon dioxide emitted during the RAFNXT+ production process.
