Cepi is the European association representing the pulp and paper industry. Cepi represents 500 pulp, paper and board producing companies, 895 production sites including 139 biorefineries across Europe and 180000 people employed directly, all above in 18 member countries.

We offer a wide range of renewable and recyclable wood-based fibre solutions to EU citizens: from packaging to textile, hygiene and tissue products, printing and graphic papers as well as speciality papers, but also bio-chemicals for food and pharmaceuticals, bio-composites and bioenergy.

We created GreenSource together with EPIS. The joint campaign was founded to boost the image and visibility of the paper industry and educate about its achievements and goals.

Cepi priorities within Greensource are:

  • Proving the industry as sustainable, responsible and innovative through most accurate resources and data
  • Showing the industry’s contribution to carbon neutrality
  • Presenting solid data on forests growth, biodiversity, sustainable forest management and certification
  • Promote fibre-based packaging and products
