Our common vision

The European Environmental Paper Network formed through a collaborative process during 2005 to create a Common Vision for Transforming the European Paper Industry. The vision was launched in Frankfurt in January 2006.

It has 5 pillars:

Reduce paper consumption

Reduce reliance on virgin fibre

Ensure social responsibility

Source fibre responsibly

Ensure clean production

A similar vision and network has developed in North America (see environmentalpaper.org), and visioning processes are underway in several regions in the global south, including Indonesia, Australia and Latin America.
