Your challenges

Supporting profitable growth in line with environmental standards

The pulp and paper industry is currently in the throes of change and must adapt to new market demands.
While packaging products for e-commerce and tissue paper production are on the up, demand for graphic paper and paper for the printing industry (newspapers, magazines etc.) has fallen sharply due to the boom in news websites and online advertising.

In a market suffering from increasing secondary raw material  scarcity, securing recycled fiber supply has become a key challenge, especially regarding packaging and cardboard facing increasing demand. 

The pulp and paper processes are water and energy intensive. In a climate of increasingly stringent environmental standards imposed by society and the authorities, the industry’s profitability depends on resources consumptions control.
This situation raises certain challenges for pulp and paper sector stakeholders.
