Decarbonising the Italian Pulp & Paper Industry

AFRY has been selected by Assocarta to define a decarbonisation strategy for the pulp and paper sector that is in line with EU framework, country-specific conditions, and technological advancements. AFRY’s assessment will outline an overall decarbonisation roadmap for the sector, pinpointing the best available technologies, regulatory and infrastructural obstacles, and competitive levers. Additionally, AFRY will provide an analysis of the pulp & paper sector in Italy, including potential scenarios to 2030 and required policies.

Beyond sector analysis and the roadmap, AFRY offers support to individual Italian pulp & paper companies, tailoring decarbonisation roadmaps to their specific operations and projects.

Assocarta is the trade association that brings together, represents and protects companies that produce paper, cardboard and pulp in Italy. Assocarta is part of Confindustria and, at European level, is member of CEPI, the European federation for pulp and paper industries. As of today, Assocarta members cover over 90% of the Italian production in the sector.
