CEPI call for Paper Industry to be classified as a critical value chain

CEPI is currently writing to all EU bodies to achieve the classification as a critical value chain. Herewith is a letter to the President of the EU and also a CEPI statement. The letter calls on the EU to define critical value chains and to include NACE code 17 in that so as to support us operating, as well as NACE code 18 for the sectors preparing final articles. In the view of approaching season for silviculture and forestry work, NACE code 02.10 would be also important to avoid calamities in forests.  Likewise they call on the European Commission to urge the continued collection of paper and board as it is our critical raw material in Europe.
