Speaking at EUROSAC's 2019 congress, held in Ljubljana between 23-24 May, EUROSAC president, Olivier Tassel, addressed current concerns under the congress theme of 'Shaping the future of packaging'.

"Our industry is going through many trends and changes. We need to make sure that we can provide solutions that meet the needs of future market demands, especially in terms of offering various barrier functions by granting sustainability and recyclability at the same time," stated Mr Tassel as he introduced the focus of this year’s congress topics.

Krassimira Kazashka, director from the International Confederation of Paper and Board Converters in Europe (CITPA) said. "Concerning climate change, one of the EU citizens' major concerns, paper packaging as a forest-based product has a great advantage: Forests are one of the keys to reducing emissions."
