Dow – Winner of UPM Raflatac Label Life Award 2016

The Label Life Awards promote responsible sourcing among UPM Raflatac's suppliers and other stakeholders

POLAND • The UPM Raflatac Label Life Awards recognize strong performance in responsible sourcing from the company’s suppliers. The awards are dedicated to suppliers who develop sustainable business practices which are safe and friendly for the environment and beneficial to society. The winner of the UPM Raflatac Label Life Awards 2016 is Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics, a business of The Dow Chemical Company.

Dow presented “The Dow Chemical Sustainability Footprint Tool” that helps companys to bring sustainability into the innovation process. The tool helps evaluate new projects through different facets of sustainability: social, economic, organizational, greenhouse gas emissions, water and resource efficiency. It also facilitates sustainability education in the company.

Dow was one of four Label Life Awards finalists that were faced with a round of rigorous questioning from jury members during the event hosted at UPM Raflatac’s Wroclaw factory in Poland. The other finalists were DRT, Henkel and Mondi. As was the case last year, the competition entries were of a high standard and evenly balanced.
