Paper industry outlines journey to European decarbonisation targets

The Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) has published a decarbonisation manifesto for the paper industry to follow in the years leading up to 2030.

It features three key catalysts for decarbonisation: product substitution, bio-based product markets and sustainable forest management.

The EU has pledged to reduce its carbon by 40 per cent by 2030 and it is possible that it will be increased to 55 per cent by the end of 2020, following MEPs urging for a more ambitious goal.
