UPM Raflatac has received Clean Industry certification for its label stock slitting and distribution operations in Tultitlan, Mexico. The Mexico facility is believed to be the first of its kind in the label industry to be awarded this certification in the country.

To achieve Clean Industry certification, companies must meet the legal requirements for environmental protection established by The Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (PROFEPA) in Mexico. They must also undergo a systematic evaluation of manufacturing procedures and processes (such as environmental impacts and waste management), identify any potential risks and successfully implement applicable preventive and corrective measures.

"We are proud to be the first label stock supplier in the region to receive this highly-respected honor," says Jose Garcia, sales director and general manager, Mexico, Central America & Caribbean. "In addition to all of our other certifications, we believe that Clean Industry certification reinforces UPM Raflatac's commitment to protecting the environment and furthers our goal of becoming the number one supplier in Mexico. Achievements like this are wonderful, concrete examples of our promise to provide high-quality, sustainable label materials complemented by the most customer-oriented service in the industry."
