In a welcome response to campaigns by environmentalists, businesses and governments are starting to phase out single-use plastic. This is a positive reaction to a global problem. Unfortunately, this move away from plastic is leading to an upturn in the consumption of wood-based packaging. Annual growth in wood-based packaging production is expected to soar.

Forests are the most efficient system for removing huge amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere on a scale sufficient to limit the rise in global temperature to 1.5 ° C. As a result, fostering a sustainable evolution of the supply chain in the packaging industry is imperative to protect our forests, stabilize the planet’s climate and protect the species with which we share it.
