PAMSA´s Jane Molony Named President of the International Council of Forest and Paper Associations

SÃO PAULO – The International Council of Forest and Paper Associations (ICFPA) announced Jane Molony as its new president. Molony, Executive Director of the Paper Manufacturers Association of South Africa (PAMSA), will serve in this capacity for the next two years.

“Across the world, wood, paper and tissue products touch lives every day in ways that often go unnoticed. Without our industries’ products, many people would not be able to teach, read or learn; businesses would not be able to ship merchandise, or protect goods; nor would people be able to improve their lives through the basics of personal hygiene. Forest and paper products also have a great environmental and economic story to tell. It is a story that has been proudly told by the ICFPA for 15 years. I am particularly honoured to take charge of this group of leaders,” said Molony.


Molony was elected at the ICFPA’s annual meeting in Berlin, Germany. The meeting was attended by 18 representatives from ICFPA members associations, who discussed future activities, cooperation and sustainability-related issue.


Molony succeeds Elizabeth de Carvalhaes, president and CEO of the Brazilian Tree Industry, who served as ICFPA president for the past three years.
“It has been a privilege to help the ICFPA continue its legacy of advocacy on important issues of interest of this global industry, and I have put significant efforts in communication. I believe this industry has a remarkable story to tell and we are just scratching the surface when it comes to public awareness and understanding of the sustainable benefits of the global forest products industry,” said Carvalhaes. “It was a great pleasure and honor to be part of this important forum and network of leaders and Ibá will continue to advocate towards the global forest industry and the plantations based industry locally and globally.”


“On behalf of the entire ICFPA, I would like to thank Elizabeth for her leadership and guidance,” said Molony. “I look forward to continuing to work with her and the other members of the steering committee to ensure a strong global forest products industry.”


The ICFPA represents more than 30 national and regional forest and paper associations around the world.
