Prospects of pulp and paper industry

over the past 10 years, many major events in Europe have had a great impact on its pulp and paper industry, such as: (1) since Austria, Finland and Sweden joined the EU, the proportion of forest paper industry in the whole economy has increased significantly, and the European Commission has also established a special agency responsible for dealing with forest paper issues. (2) With the transformation of the functions of trade associations, for example, the European paper Federation (CEPI) is shifting its focus from market analysis and data statistics to building a bridge for information technology exchanges. (3) With the gradual implementation of the European integration process, the decision-making authority of the European Parliament has been further strengthened. (4) An open and transparent consultation and dialogue mechanism has been established between the European Commission and industrial enterprises, and enterprises' independent consultation and consensus are advocated as the best solution. (5) Actively promote the globalization process of European pulp and paper industry

the importance of the paper industry in the EU is increasing

since Austria, Finland and Sweden joined the EU in 1994, the forest paper industry has become increasingly important in the EU political agenda, mainly because the forest paper industry occupies an important position in the EU economy, the forest area has doubled, the production capacity of the paper industry has increased by 50%, and the pulping capacity has tripled, Completely change the original situation of "lack of forest and few trees" in the European Union (region)

in 1996, the forestry and related industries (FBI) committee was added to the enterprise management committee, which highlighted the important position of the paper industry and promoted the dialogue and consultation mechanism between the paper industry and different management departments of the committee, especially the environmental management committee. The members of the FBI Committee come from the forestry and paper industry and are directly subordinate to the European Commission to further promote the development and growth of the forestry and paper industry

the European paper Federation mainly carries out exchanges and cooperation with the trade management committee, the enterprise management committee and the environmental management committee. It is estimated that the total industrial output value will reach 10 trillion yuan by 2025, including the membership committee, the Agricultural Management Committee and the scientific research management committee

function transformation: from market positioning to information sharing (exchange), it has steadily entered the international market.

the European paper Federation (CEPI) was founded in 1992, which was merged from the European Paper Research Institute in Paris and the European pulp/paper/paperboard Industry Federation in Brussels, mainly to promote and strengthen exchanges and cooperation between European research institutions. Since its establishment, CEPI has contributed to a number of major decisions affecting the development of the paper industry in the entire European region

At present, the function of CEPI has changed from market positioning and data statistics to technical information exchange and cooperation with all European research institutions. The member units of CEPI come from the industry associations of the 15 European Union countries, which exercise industry functions on behalf of the governments of all countries. All Member States in Europe reach an agreement on different topics affecting the paper industry, and then submit them to the expert committee set up in the CEPI Secretariat in Brussels to avoid Member States dealing with relevant issues by themselves

the role of wood/paper and related industry organizations is not to deal with special industry issues, such as the amount of secondary fiber and waste (or pollutants) emissions to the surrounding air (or atmosphere)/water, but to focus on more complex deep-seated issues, such as climate change, energy reuse and waste treatment, which is the latest requirement for industry organizations. One of the most important achievements of CEPI is to improve the level of waste recycling and utilization in Europe

the European Commission advocates a dialogue and consultation mechanism among industries

in recent years, an open and transparent dialogue and consultation atmosphere has been built between industrial enterprises and scientific research institutions, which has promoted their exchanges and cooperation. The committee often exchanges and consults with different enterprises on the proposals or legislation of relevant enterprises, which is a problem in many subdivisions of new materials. They jointly discuss the feasibility of proposals or legislation and analyze the necessity of legislation. Of course, industrial enterprises are also very willing to accept this dialogue and consultation mechanism, and hope that the new legislation can fully consider their views and then be implemented. At the same time, industrial enterprises also voluntarily assist in legislation and undertake corresponding obligations, which is inseparable from the committee's full expression of the enterprise's intentions and assistance in achieving the established goals. This is also a new task that CEPI must successfully fulfill for the entire European paper industry in the next few years

globalization development strategy of European paper industry

although the scale of the entire European paper industry continues to grow, the phenomenon of fragmentation is still very serious. Among the 20 major paper enterprises in Europe, their total production capacity does not exceed 60% of the total production of the region. This shows that there are a considerable number of small and medium-sized enterprises in the European paper industry, and their economic benefits are quite good, and some of them directly or indirectly promote or stimulate the economic development of the region. However, with the accelerated implementation of the globalization strategy of the European paper industry, many multinational companies merged and reorganized to build a stronger paper industry, with a transaction volume of up to 64 billion euros. If the links of wood, paper and transportation supply are calculated together, the merger and acquisition volume of the forest paper industry, which allows gasoline to evaporate and then apply grease, has exceeded 400billion euros, employs 4million employees, and has become one of the pillar industries of the European economy

the development trend of European paper industry is to take the road of sustainable development, increase the level of recycling and effective waste treatment, and support unified relevant industrial policies. Research and development is also a key factor affecting the sustainable development of the European paper industry. Examples of initiatives taken by the European paper industry

waste paper recycling: the European paper Federation (CEPI) and the European Waste Paper Association (ERPA) have worked out an action plan for waste paper recycling, which plans to achieve a waste paper recycling rate of 56% by 2005, an increase of 7% over 1999

forestry certification: CEPI successfully implemented the forestry credible certification schemes in April 2000, ending the international disputes between forestry certification systems that have not been recognized for many years
