Industry Initiatives

 

4evergreen

4evergreen is a forum to engage and connect industry members from across the fibre-based packaging value chain, from paper and board producers to packaging converters, brand-owners and retailers, technology and material suppliers, waste sorters and collectors, and more.
Its aim is to look at design for recycling, with a view to further boost the contribution of fibre-based packaging in a circular and sustainable economy that minimises climate and environmental impact, It will deliver a holistic approach to optimise the sustainability and circularity of the fibre-based packaging’s life cycle.

EPRC

The European Paper Recycling Council (EPRC) was set up as an industry self-initiative in November 2000 to monitor progress towards meeting higher paper recycling targets. These are set out in the European Declaration on Paper Recycling first published in 2000 and renewed every five years since. The current target for the 2016-2020 declaration is set to 74%.

#Greensource

Europe’s forest fibre industry is good for the planet, good for the people and good for the European economy.

We can make the 2050 climate neutrality target a reality while making sure that forests keep growing, absorbing CO2 and protecting biodiversity.

Sustainability platform

The Cepi Sustainability Platform was launched in 2018 to show that sustainability and competitiveness have to go hand in hand in order for industry to excel; our industry is a leading example of this.

For instance, we use residues, such as bark. We also turn residues from recycling into useful products that foster Europe’s Circular Economy. At the same time we are pioneering research that will provide low-carbon alternatives to the way we produce our products, reducing not only the amount of raw materials we use, but the amount of energy we consume.

Sustainability is precisely that: a vision of business development based on sustainable practices that address society’s key challenges, on a long-lasting basis. The European forest fibre and paper industry is the only mainstream industry that is both renewable and recyclable. We are therefore uniquely placed to create new sustainable opportunities which contribute both to climate mitigation and sustainable growth, to make the European Green Deal happen.

Our platform uses our industry most recent data to demonstrate how sustainability is applied across all dimensions of our business model.

Reinvest 2050

Advancing low-carbon innovation in the forest fibre and paper industry

From forest fibre technology to advanced paper design, the forest fibre and paper industry is a leader of the low-carbon circular bioeconomy transition. Our products add value to European society at large, as they are renewable, recyclable, bio-based, innovative and Made in Europe.

REINVEST 2050 is a commitment of the forest fibre and paper industry to demonstrate how the industry is actively taking responsibility in reducing its carbon emissi

ons, as well as playing a leading role in providing bio-based alternatives to more carbon-intensive products.

REFFIBRE

REFFIBRE is an EU-funded project that started in November 2013. Using parallel tracks, the project developed various tools for the paper and board industry to cover different parts of the value chain. These tools were then tested through the comparison of different modelling results of their environmental impact with the results from actual demonstration tests.

These innovative concepts include fractionation of input materials and production of novel products from side streams (e.g. bio-oil using pyrolysis).

This was done to provide the needed information regarding the impact of new production processes, raw material input and product innovations, as well as the influence on the recyclability of the end product. The tools enabled paper makers to consider innovations affecting profitability in the value chain.

CTS

The Comparative Testing Service of Cepi (Cepi-CTS) is a quantitative, simultaneous and continuous proficiency testing scheme for the Paper Industry that runs continuously since 1976. It comprises a Round Robin programme of more than 100 different tests and it is used by more than 400 paper testing laboratories in most European countries. It is one of the many activities supported by Cepi and it is run by a Working Group whose members are nominated by the national Paper Associations and who are mostly research institutes.

ImpactPapeRec

The European project IMPACTPapeRec was launched in Valencia in February 2016. The objective of the project is to further increase the separate collection of paper for recycling (PfR) and promote appropriate schemes to avoid landfilling and incineration. The project lasted over a period of two years and was financed by the European Union Horizon 2020 programme.

Pulp and Paper Value Chain information system

The group manages and promotes the use of the Harmonized Questionnaire. In includes the most important and frequently asked product safety and compliance questions that pulp and paper manufacturers address to their chemical and raw material suppliers. It can be used as such to fill-in and exchange information via e-mail but the biggest benefits can be achieved when the web-based IT-tool is also used.

The P&P VIS – Pulp and Paper Value Chain Information System – is a joint initiative of EPCG (European Pulp and Paper Chemical Group) and Cepi. The objective is to establish a standardized way to communicate product stewardship information along the value chain in an efficient and harmonized way.
