Paper industry with strong representation in BRIDGE – the new BioBased Public Private Partnership

BRIDGE - Biobased and Renewables Industries for Development and Growth in Europe – PPP is about investing in Europe and its people. It is about creating jobs, tackling societal challenges with innovative biobased technologies, and using renewable resources and wastes to make high quality biobased products and materials. It is about revitalizing Europe’s industrial infrastructure, and developing rural areas through the creation of biorefineries, which are at the heart of the biobased economy. CEPI and 12 European pulp and paper producers are partner in this Public Private Partnership (PPP).

In short the BRIDGE PPP stands for:
- Enabling rural development and re-industrialisation
- Connecting farmers and foresters with consumers through locally sourced and produced goods and products
- Accelerating the transition towards smart and efficient use of resources
- Securing European competitiveness in the global biobased economy race
