Every two years The Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) publishes the report on the European pulp and paper industry’s sustainability performance and the CEPI activities supporting it.
Sustainability and competitiveness have to go hand in hand for industry to excel. The European paper industry is a leading example of this. Reducing raw material consumption makes both sustainable and economic sense. Using residues from papermaking to produce renewable energy is also a good example. Turning residues from recycling operations into useful products is part of the circular economy that the planet needs to achieve.
CEPI assimilates information and aggregates data from 2011 and 2012 voluntarily provided
by companies and member organisations, and it is complemented by CEPI research.
