UPM Raflatac Achieves Three Forest Certifications
Sunday, February 01, 2009

UPM Raflatac Inc., Fletcher, NC, USA, has announced the company's
achievement of chain of custody certification from the world's three
prominent forest certification organizations--the Sustainable Forestry
Initiative, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification and
the Forest Stewardship Council. The certifications cover UPM Raflatac's
North America labelstock manufacturing facilities located in Fletcher and
in Dixon, IL, USA, and the company's slitting and distribution terminal
located in Ontario, CA, USA.

Using an independent, third-party auditor, UPM Raflatac has demonstrated
that its raw materials are sourced from responsibly managed forests and
manufactured by mills that adhere to their rigorous standards. The chain
of custody certifications demonstrate that UPM Raflatac has established an
effective tracking system to identify the amount of certified, uncertified
and recycled content in the forest products purchased and used in the
company's production processes, as well as in the finished labelstock that
is offered to their customers.

"Acquiring chain of custody certification from all three internationally
recognized forest certification from all three internationally recognized
forest certification programs demonstrates our commitment to environmental
leadership," says Linnea Keen, marketing director, UPM Raflatac Inc. "Our
certifications are an important part of UPM Raflatac's sustainability
program. We have implemented a comprehensive environmental strategy which
addresses all aspects of labelstock manufacturing to optimize production
processes, reduce waste and create innovative products and services."
