European Paper Recycling at 71.5% in 2015

Today’s vote in the European Parliament marks a major stepping stone for the ETS review.

“This message reads loud and clear:

NO to a tiered approach on carbon leakage and YES to a dynamic and predictable benchmark’s reduction”

European forest owners, managers and forest-based industries released a joint statement today, outlining key elements to be included in the review of the FOREST EUROPE process to ensure Sustainable Forest Management (SFM), at the first meeting of the working group on the future direction of the FOREST EUROPE in Bratislava.

We welcome the European Commission’s intention to create a technically interoperable system in all Member States. However, the introduction of any distance-based road charging measure will inevitably be more costly. Road charging should not result in penalising of the road.

Short summary: The proposal to reduce the VAT rate for e-books will not necessarily reduce the current price of e-books, as publishers may not pass this reduction to the end consumer.

Short summary: We support a completely free market for transport services in the European Union that can improve industry’s competitiveness. Liability of shippers should be proportionate.

The paper and board production process, especially when carried out with paper for recycling as the raw material, leads to the generation of large amounts of side streams, mainly sludges, rejects and process water.
