Confederation of European Paper Industries Represents: 19 National Associations 683 companies 1,000 mills
European Pulp and Paper IndustryPaper production 89 mio tonsPulp production 12 mio tonsTurn over € 80 bio€18 billion added value to EU GDP230 000 jobEmployment multiplying effect: 8 times60% in rural areas
CEPI Vision Roll out of Roadmap 2012 The European Pulp and Paper Industry is a leading example of how competitiveness and sustainability can go hand in hand
Competitiveness and sustainability 69.6% of paper is recycled; wood is renewable 53% of wood used by paper industry comes from certifiedresponsibly managed forests 30% reduction of GHG since 1990 54.5% of total on-site primary energy is renewable Produces 20% of biomass energy in Europe 96% of electricity is produced through CHP 83% of pulp & paper products produced in EMS certified mills Decoupled production and environmental impacts Is committed to reach zero accidents Innovative and technology driven

At a crossroads Financial turmoil in Europe Raw materials struggle Mainstream substitution technologies Power shift in the global economy Un-level playing field at global level
A connected world • Population by 2050 – 9 billion • GDP from US$35 to 72 trillion by 2030 • Cereal demand: + 67% by 2050 • Energy demand double by 2030 • GHG emissions decrease 50-80% by 2050 • Water demand to increase 30% by 2030 • Land deficit by 2050 – 200 million ha

The CEPI 2050 Roadmap Rediscovering the route to growth
It’s time to change Henry Ford: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse”.
The challenge 50% more value, 80% less fossil CO2, 40 years from now in a mature European market, with a stagnating population, within a broad sector scope THE FOREST FIBRE SECTOR tor
ValueThe core strategy of thepath to 2050 is to get the highest possible valuefrom resources – wood,virgin and recycled fibre, wood fibres and non- fibre raw material
IntegrationWith paper at its core, a system of integratedrecycled and integrated virgin mills, balanced by nonintegrated mills, will produce a number of newproducts and services, using the whole input rawmaterial .
