Jori Ringman has a background in Economics (Helsinki University) and Business Management (Helsinki School of Economics) and broad experience in communications, public administration and politics. He also has an MSc in Environmental Decision-making (Open University, Milton Keynes).
From March to September 2016 Mr Ringman had an interim role as Acting Director General for the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI). After working as CEPI's Deputy Director General and Sustainability Director, he was appointed Director General on 17 June 2019. His areas of expertise are environment and consumer protection, with paticular concern for packaging and food contact. Environmental issues and policies are central to all CEPI’s activities, as the industry continuously works to minimise its impact across the EU and advance circular thinking and industrial symbiosis in the sector.
Prior to joining CEPI in February 2005, he was a civil servant at the European Commission and a political advisor in the European Parliament.
