CEPI annual conference Paper & Beyond 2019 “Our climate, our solutions”
Registration is now open for Paper & Beyond 2019, the annual conference of the European paper industry and its value chain, bringing together pulp and paper producers, cardboard product manufacturers, technology suppliers, EU policy makers, researchers, scientists and media. Early bird tickets are available here.
Together with distinguished speakers such as IKEA’s former Chief Sustainability Officer Steve Howard, and European Commission Director General for Climate Mauro Petriccione, we will demonstrate how our industry is at the forefront of climate change mitigation thanks to its natural resources, processes and final products.
What can you expect?
Paper & Beyond 2019 will be the opportunity to state our climate ambition in an exclusive initiative which our top CEOs will hand over to EU policymakers and the press.
We will also launch new industry platforms and tools to help boost material substitution, increase the circularity and recyclability of our products and guarantee their safety in the many applications. Finally, we will illustrate how we implement digitalisation and resource efficiency to the benefit of our industry and the environment.
During the conference, CEPI will unveil its new visual identity reflecting the industry’s transformation, focusing on its core values, attributes and solutions.
If you join us on 19 November, you can also look forward to discovering inspiring innovation talks thanks to our Blue Sky Young Researchers & Innovation Award. This award singles out remarkable research projects in forest-based science, products using forest-based raw materials, process improvements or other innovations throughout the value chain.
Paper and Beyond 2019 will take place on 18-19 November at the Marriott Hotel Grand Place in Brussels.
The draft programme is available here.
