Label converters and brand owners were invited to attend the launch of UPM Raflatac’s FSC® and PEFC™ Chain of Custody certified labelstock products in Jakarta at the Pullman Hotel on 13 February 2014.
“Achieving both FSC and PEFC Chain of Custody certification for our range of products is a significant milestone,” says Jouni Komulainen, General Manager, UPM Raflatac Southeast Asia. “To be the first label stock supplier in this region to offer forest certified paper label stocks is another proud achievement which has been very much welcomed by our industry partners.”
This event also attracted a very special guest Mrs Sulistyowati, Deputy within the Ministry of Environment. In June last year the Environment Ministry of Indonesia launched a 10-year framework for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP), to manage the environment towards sustainable development. “In this framework business owners will be able to conform and become environmentally friendly”, says Sulistyowati. “We wish to see more industries in Indonesia follow in the footsteps of UPM Raflatac towards a more sustainable future.”
Over 70 label converters and brand owners in Indonesia attended the launch which explored the growing importance of Chain of Custody in the labelling industry, presented by Dr Carol Lawrence, Environment and Sustainability Specialist, UPM Raflatac Oceania. “Our expert knowledge on sustainability can definitely help our customers and brand owners to fulfil their market requirements. Additionally this will also allow local businesses to contribute towards the country’s sustainability effort.” says Yomie Harlin, Country Manager, Indonesia.
