Paper & Beyond!


Equundiam, utendendus eumquia sus minvelis ad que nimusam usandem eaturitatis res vellat porehent, soles aliquam exerio cone la aut odic tem corrumquam aut qui .

Paper & Beyond is the annual event of the European Paper industry and its value chain, bringing together pulp and paper producers, paper and cardboard product manufacturers, technology suppliers, EU policy makers, researchers & scientists and press.

The current EU mandate, driven by the EU Green Deal, has marked a major breakthrough for the EU’s climate ambitions, the industry, consumers, and society as a whole. The next political cycle, starting in 2024, will be crucial for implementing the ambitious adopted pack of legislations ahead of 2030 and for defining the EU’s global role in the context of the green transition. Cepi’s leading campaign, Circular Choices, promotes the policy and market conditions needed in the EU in the next years to scale-up the circular bioeconomy, that our society so urgently needs. It’s time for choosing competitiveness of strategic EU industries; choosing regenerative products and materials; choosing enhanced natural capital and sustainable forests. It’s time for Circular Choices.

Paper & Beyond 2023. Circular Choices will take place in the renovated Marriott Hotel Grand Place located in the heart of Brussels.
