Oriflame Products Poland targets 'zero waste to­­ landfill' with UPM Raflatac's RafCycle®2017-03-09T10:00:00Z<p class="hugin">&#160; &#160;<br class="hugin">(UPM Raflatac, Helsinki, 9 March 2017 at 12&#58;00 EET) - Cosmetics industry giant Oriflame Products Poland has joined UPM Raflatac's RafCycle<b class="hugin">®</b> recycling program. RafCycle recycles and reuses pressure sensitive label waste to create new materials. The partnership supports Oriflame's target to reduce its landfill waste to zero across all their manufacturing sites. </p> <p class="hugin">&quot;As part of our overall strategy for the period up to 2020, we've implemented a &quot;zero waste to landfill&quot; program across all our factories. The method for waste disposal outlined in the RafCycle program fits in well with this strategy and will bring us closer to our goal,&quot; says <b class="hugin">Anna Niedzwiecka</b>, Senior Supply Chain Manager, Oriflame Products Poland.</p> <p class="hugin">Oriflame Products Poland is the first Oriflame factory to pursue this ambitious target. Opened in Warsaw in 1995, it occupies 15,000 square metres and is one of the company's largest sites.</p> <p class="hugin">Partnership in the RafCycle program delivers a range of quantifiable benefits. The Oriflame Products Poland factory has reduced its waste management costs by a significant 18%, for example. The company also earns the right to use the &quot;RafCycle Partner&quot; logo in its marketing - a big plus considering growing public awareness of sustainability.</p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">Katarzyna Zych-Mlynarczyk</b>, Sales Manager at UPM Raflatac Poland explains how the RafCycle program works&#58; &quot;First of all, we analyse the customer's current waste management system, including how waste is collected and how often. The key is to find a solution that fits our customer's needs. This is the only way to achieve an optimal result.&quot;</p> <p class="hugin">&quot;UPM Raflatac is a frontrunner in solutions for managing the challenges of label waste. We look forward to developing new and existing partnerships with customers and end-users on the road to zero landfill waste,&quot; comments <b class="hugin">Juha Virmavirta</b>, Director of RafCycle Solutions at UPM Raflatac. &quot;With the Oriflame partnership we're delighted to see RafCycle expanding into the cosmetics industry. Poland is a major market for UPM Raflatac, and this adds even more importance to our cooperation. Dialogue between Oriflame and UPM Raflatac has enhanced the sustainability of our business together. We hope to continue this dialogue to identify further opportunities.&quot;</p> <p class="hugin">Oriflame's Anna Niedzwiecka agrees, &quot;It's only natural that we would want to meet the environmental expectations of our customers. In addition to the 'zero waste to landfill' program, we've made the decision to purchase our energy exclusively from renewable sources. We've also launched a completely natural and organic line of cosmetics named EcoBeauty. It's important to note that Oriflame has set a target to eliminate waste transportation to landfill in all its factories. This is in line with the European Union waste management strategy's '5R' approach&#58; Remove, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover.</p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">For further information please contact&#58;</b><br class="hugin">Juha Virmavirta, Director, RafCycle solutions, UPM Raflatac, tel. +358 20 416143</p> <p class="hugin">Photos can be downloaded at the <a class="hugin" href="http&#58;//pet.upm.com/l/z-gvhvHrWHfm" target="_blank">UPM Photo Library »</a></p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM Raflatac </b><br class="hugin">UPM Raflatac is one of the world's leading producers of self-adhesive label materials.

RP76E delivers in terms of water whitening performance in applications that require water resistance, and PET23 HS is the ideal choice for the fastest high-speed dispensing and beverage bottling lines.</p> <p class="hugin">RafBev Clear TC 40 also offers sustainability benefits over the label's life cycle due to its thinner construction. As a result, less raw material is needed in the production, the transportation burden is eased with a lighter load, and less waste is produced. Additionally, there are fewer reel changes required in printing and dispensing which further reduces waste and increases productivity. </p> <p class="hugin">&quot;Beverage bottles undergo many humidity and temperature challenges throughout their lifetime,&quot; says <b class="hugin">Päivi Knihti</b>, Segment Manager, Films, EMEIA. &quot;RafBev Clear TC 40 is designed to maintain its appearance and performance throughout, giving a premium no-label look with more flexibility than printing directly on the bottle. It is ideal for those that are looking to replace wet glue with a self-adhesive label solution, offering cost and sustainability benefits, while also enhancing brand and shelf appeal.&quot;</p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">For further information please contact&#58;</b><br class="hugin">Päivi Knihti, Segment Manager, UPM Raflatac, Films, EMEIA, tel. +358 2041 6143</p> <p class="hugin">High resolution image can be found in <a class="hugin" href="http&#58;//pet.upm.com/l/P6G_FQLKZxLP" target="_blank">UPM image bank</a>.</p> <p class="hugin">Read more about film label materials at&#58; <br class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="http&#58;//www.upmraflatac.com/emea/en/solutions-and-services/film-label-stocks" target="_blank">http&#58;//www.upmraflatac.com/emea/en/solutions-and-services/film-label-stocks</a> </p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM Raflatac </b></p> UPM Raflatac is one of the world's leading producers of self-adhesive label materials.&#160;We supply high-quality paper and film label stock for consumer product and industrial&#160;labelling through a global network of factories, distribution terminals and sales offices.&#160;<br class="hugin"> <p class="hugin">We employ around 3,000 people and made sales of EUR 1.4 billion (USD 1.5 billion)&#160;in 2016.&#160;Find out more at <a class="hugin" href="http&#58;//www.upmraflatac.com" target="_blank">www.upmraflatac.com</a>.</p> <p class="hugin">Follow UPM Raflatac on <a class="hugin" href="https&#58;//twitter.com/upm_raflatac" target="_blank">Twitter</a> <b class="hugin">|</b> <a class="hugin" href="https&#58;//www.linkedin.com/company/upm-raflatac" target="_blank">LinkedIn</a> <b class="hugin">|</b> <a class="hugin" href="https&#58;//www.facebook.com/upmraflatac" target="_blank">Facebook</a> <b class="hugin">|</b> <a class="hugin" href="https&#58;//www.youtube.com/user/upmraflatac" target="_blank">YouTube</a> | <a class="hugin" href="https&#58;//www.instagram.com/upmraflatac/" target="_blank">Instagram</a></p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM</b><br class="hugin">Through the renewing of the bio and forest industries, UPM is building a sustainable future across six business areas&#58; UPM Biorefining, UPM Energy, UPM Raflatac, UPM Specialty Papers, UPM Paper ENA and UPM Plywood.

The above indicated estimate of the maximum share rewards represents the gross value of the rewards of which the applicable taxes will be deducted before the shares are delivered to the participants. </p> <p class="hugin">Share delivery will be executed by using already existing shares and the plans, therefore, have no dilutive effect. Besides the attainment of the performance criteria the share reward under both plans is subject to the continuation of the employment. The share rewards earned on the basis of the plans for the period 2017-2019 will be delivered in 2020. </p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">For further information, please contact&#58; </b><br class="hugin">Riitta Savonlahti, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, tel. +358 204 15 0048&#160; &#160;</p> <p class="hugin">UPM-Kymmene Corporation<br class="hugin">Pirkko Harrela<br class="hugin">Executive Vice President, Stakeholder Relations</p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM, Media Relations</b><br class="hugin">Mon-Fri from 9&#58;00 to 16&#58;00 EET<br class="hugin">tel. +358 40 588 3284<a class="hugin" href="#">&#160; &#160;</a><br class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="mailto&#58;media@upm.com" target="_blank">media@upm.com</a></p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM</b><br class="hugin">Through the renewing of the bio and forest industries, UPM is building a sustainable future across six business areas&#58; UPM Biorefining, UPM Energy, UPM Raflatac, UPM Specialty Papers, UPM Paper ENA and UPM Plywood.
