European Declaration on Paper Recycling 2011-2015, Monitoring Report 2011


The first annual report of the third five-year period of the European Declaration on Paper Recycling is out. Since 2000, the European paper value chain has been committed to increasing recycling and to consciously removing elements that would hamper paper recycling in Europe. The new reporting template offers more indicators giving insight to the wider context of paper recycling, as well as the already established figure on recycling rate and the related recycling volumes. New indicators show, for instance, a 40% reduction in specific CO2 per tonne of paper produced in Europe.
