The pulp, paper and print industry is one of the leading sectors when it comes to renewable energy and mitigating carbon impact. The industry is relatively energy-intensive, but it also has a proven commitment to energy efficiency and is Europe’s biggest industrial user of renewable energy. This explains why the sector is responsible for comparatively low greenhouse gas emissions, at 0.8% of the European total.
The industry is committed to using clear and credible carbon footprint calculations so that stakeholders can trust the information they receive. They are equally committed to achieving a low-carbon bioeconomy, with the sector having invested €5.1 billion in 2018, which is more than twice the average of other manufacturing sectors.
