Key Statistics 2015

Welcome to the latest issue of CEPI’s Key Statistics, giving a clear picture of the European pulp and paper industry’s performance in 2015.


The statistics included in this booklet are a compilation of data received from the National Associations which are CEPI’s members, under the auspices of CEPI’s Statistics Network. Some additional sources, such as Eurostat, have been used where necessary and relevant. Extra statistical information is accessible online to members on CEPI’s Members Area website and to non-members by subscription. Contact Ariane Crèvecoeur at for more information.
