Welcome to CEPI - CONFEDERATION OF EUROPEAN PAPER INDUSTRIES

The use of paper for packaging purposes is growing every year, due to its excellent environmental performance but also to the increasing demand related to e-commerce and delivery services. There is a strong expectation from consumers, brands and retailers to have recyclable packaging material.

Energy Intensive Industries: all sectors of economy will have to work together to deliver on climate-neutrality

Cepi, the European association representing the paper industry, announced today a new alliance called 4evergreen. The aim of the alliance is to boost the contribution of fibre-based packaging in a circular and sustainable economy that minimises climate and environmental impact. 

The Industry4Europe coalition has today issued its new Joint Paper 

Since the EU Forest Strategy was adopted in 2013, the EU policy framework and the EU policies affecting forests have strongly evolved. It is now more broadly recognized that forests and the forest sector play a crucial role in addressing major challenges in line with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and the climate change mitigation goals of the Paris Agreement.

Clarifications on CEPI's position on the separate collection of paper and board from residual waste and other recyclables, as well as the collection and recyclability of paper products that are multi-layered or have been in contact with wood.

Report from the High-Level Group on Energy-Intensive Industries:

It is clear that renewability and circularity are key solutions to decarbonise society. And that forests are the most effective carbon sinks known to man.  

There is a growing expectation from consumers, brands and retailers that the packaging they use is recyclable, as part of a global ecodesign approach to reduce its impact on the environment. Producers and recyclers of paper-based packaging are committed to delivering on this expectation.
