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 platforms and tools to help boost material substitution, increase the circularity and recyclability of our products and guarantee their safety in the many product applications. Finally, we will illustrate how the digitalisation of our processes brings benefits both for 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.
