About Topics

A broad range of topics affect the European pulp and paper industry, for example energy, forestry, recycling, food contact, and trade. These issues are subject to European policies, which can directly impact the industry’s competitiveness and sustainability. Many of these issues are interconnected, and this is reflected in the integrated approach that CEPI takes in addressing them.

This section provides you with information on all of the key topics currently impacting our industry. Click on the menu above or in the list below for the latest information for each topic.
