The challenge: decarbonising whilst being recycling pioneer

SUMMARY FOR POLICY MAKERS

Today’s publication of the non-binding guidelines on the cascading use of wood fails to live up to the Commission’s own ambitions signalled in its recent Bioeconomy Strategy.

Industry4Europe is a coalition of around 130 manufacturer associations committed towards the achievement of an ambitious EU industrial strategy.

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.

Deloitte has been engaged by the Confederation of European Paper Industries (“CEPI”) to issue a limited assurance statement on the data quality rating method CEPI applies on a selection of core indicators published in the “2017 CEPI annual statistics report”, “2016 Environment statistics report” and the “
