EU paper industry reviews 2050 low-carbon industry roadmap
The European paper industry has launched the reviewed version of its 2050 Roadmap detailing the pathways and investment needed to cut its carbon emissions by 80% while creating 50% more added-value. The Roadmap projects the need for €44 billion more investment - a 40% increase on current levels - to transform industry in Europe and lead the low-carbon bioeconomy by 2050.
The Confederation of European Paper Industry (CEPI) pioneered in 2011 the first Roadmap. Now the industry reaffirms its vision that decarbonisation and growth are mutually compatible and calls for a better alignment of policy, research and financing conditions to boost investment (Press Release CEPI, 27 February 2017).
