European Paper Recycling Branch (ERPA)
The European Paper Recycling Branch’s (ERPA) objective is to represent the European paper recycling industries towards the European institutions and to liaise with other European and international stakeholders. ERPA advocates for global free, fair, and sustainable trade of recovered paper and is a Member of the Technical Committee Pulp, Paper, and Board (CEN/TC 172). ERPA was founded in the early 1990s and was formerly known as WAPAC before being incorporated as a EuRIC branch in 2014.
“Paper recycling significantly reduces material and energy use while simultaneously counteracting the negative impacts on the climate and environment. ERPA unites European leaders from across the paper recycling industries with the ambition to take the circular economy for paper to the next level.”
