Welcome to CEPI - CONFEDERATION OF EUROPEAN PAPER INDUSTRIES

In the context of the European Commission’s work on developing a classification system for sustainable investments, CEPI and the European organisations representing the European forest-based bioeconomy value chain have issued a joint statement on the role of forest management in the proposed taxonomy regulation. The statement notably addresses the value of sustainable and active forest management for climate mitigation as part of the on-going review carried by the European Commission experts group.

Previously known as "To our roots and beyond", the second edition of our project REINVEST 2050 was launched with an event in the European Parliament on 12 February in Strasbourg.

Forest stakeholders call for a stronger EU Forest Strategy to reach United Nations and Paris Agreement goals

Since the EU Forest Strategy was adopted in 2013, the EU policy framework and the EU policies affecting forests have strongly evolved. It is now more broadly recognized that forests and the forest sector play a crucial role in addressing major challenges in line with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and the climate change mitigation goals of the Paris Agreement.

Clarifications on CEPI's position on the separate collection of paper and board from residual waste and other recyclables, as well as the collection and recyclability of paper products that are multi-layered or have been in contact with wood.

It is of utmost importance to overcome misconceptions and misunderstandings concerning the bioeconomy. Ensuring the rapid availability of undisputable data and facts on the expected environmental, climate, social and economic benefits of the bioeconomy and bio-based products, is a must in order to raise awareness and promote the bioeconomy across Europe’s society at large.

Preliminary Statistics 2018 /// 1 February 2019

Paper and board production stable and market pulp production up in 2018 compared to 2017

Pulp & paper production in the industry could create 9.5 times more added value and more than 6 times more jobs than burning wood for bioenergy only.

Each year in July CEPI publishes the latest preliminary market and production data for the previous year. The latest data whether it is production, added-value or exports all indicate positive trends.
