Responsible sourcing at the foundation of UPM Raflatac’s Label Life Awards 2018

At UPM Raflatac, responsible sourcing is the foundation of responsible business. With a diverse global supplier network such as ours, working together in partnership is essential in our journey toward a more sustainable future. To demonstrate the importance of responsible sourcing and to commit our suppliers to sustainability, we have created the Label Life Awards concept. This year, the Label Life Awards event will take place at the UPM-Kymmene head office in Helsinki, Finland on March 22, 2018.

“The Label Life Awards are the most visible way to demonstrate UPM Raflatac’s commitment to responsible sourcing and responsible business practises. They are a special recognition for those UPM Raflatac suppliers who operate responsibly and enable us to identify potential areas for cooperation in the field of sustainability”, says Maria Seppälä, Vice President, Sourcing, UPM Raflatac.

· Delfort Dunafin
