‘This is not just another conference, this is a Forum. A Forum for debate, exchanging ideas, promoting progress and moving the paper industry forward on issues which are common to all parts of the paper supply chain. ’
ABOUT THE FORUM
The Paper Sustainability Forum is being developed in response to requests from EMGE clients. A number of our clients feel that, though conferences are beneficial in covering topics on current issues, they fail to provide a clear message on what might be the next step forward for the sector as a whole.
In response to this, the Paper Sustainability Forum will aim to explore and evolve key sustainability topics with the support of expert presentations that will discuss current and future issues. Moreover, there will be active contributions from the various graphic paper supply chain stakeholders, which will serve to highlight the needs of, and the affects on, each and every segment of the supply chain.
The Paper Sustainability Forum will provide attendees the opportunity to have an open discussion of ideas, opinions and visions with environmental experts and your industry peers, which will contribute to the development of the paper supply chain's approach to sustainability.
The speakers, which will include top executives, papermakers, government experts, scientists, paper merchants and publishers, will not only make presentations , but also participate in the debates, providing you with valuable information and insight from the sector's leading experts.
Following the expert presentations, there will be the chance to attend one of two Forum Workshops, which are aimed at addressing the issues and impacts that concern all stakeholders. The Workshops will also discuss and debate potential future strategies aimed at benefiting all those concerned.
Finally, the Chairperson of each Forum Workshop will then present a summary of conclusions reached to all delegates the following day.
