Created in the early nineties under the name of WAPAC, the European Recovered Paper Association (ERPA) AISBL aims at promoting paper recovery and recycling and support the development of the European recovered paper industry.
The Confederation of European Paper Industry is an organization encouraging the visibility of paper industry and promotes initiatives and acts in all areas of paper business including recycling of paper and use of recycled paper products.
The European Paper Recycling Council (EPRC) was set up as an industry self-initiative in November 2000 to monitor progress towards meeting higher paper recycling targets. These are set out in the European Declaration on Paper Recycling first published in 2000 and renewed every five years since. The current target for the 2016-2020 declaration is set to 74%.
“TwoSides” is an initiative by companies from the graphic communication supply chain with the aim of fostering responsible production and use of paper. “TwoSides” promotes paper products as renewable and sustainable alternative.
