The climate study
The EU has set the goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050. Germany has committed to achieving this objective by 2045. For these ambitions to be realised, industry must undergo a transformation. A clear political commitment to Germany as an industry-friendly place to do business is essential if the necessary investments are to be made. This is the only way to maintain value creation within the country. With this climate study, DIE PAPIERINDUSTRIE aims to provide an overview of the various transformation pathways available to the sector. The study is intended to give policymakers and members of civil society a comprehensive understanding of the industry and its relationship with climate protection. The Papiertechnische Stiftung (PTS), the Chair of Paper Technology and Mechanical Process Engineering (PMV) at the Technical University of Darmstadt and the Modellfabrik Papier gGmbH participated in this study. In addition, an accompanying group consisting of industry experts provided technical advice and support.
