Organized by RISI, the leading information provider to the global forest products industry, the PPI Awards was launched in 2009. Due to its success and popularity, it has evolved into an annual event. The PPI Awards are the only global awards dedicated to recognizing the achievements of companies, mills and individuals in the pulp and paper sector.

About the Awards
The PPI Awards provided an opportunity for pulp and papermakers worldwide to show off their achievements on a global platform. Companies who chose to enter the PPI Awards submitted their entries online for one or more categories. These entries were then judged by an international panel of independent judges. The finalists were chosen and invited to attend a gala dinner where the winners were revealed. Winners were presented with their trophies by the sponsor of each category and a celebrity host.
