Providing a voice to paper manufacturers who are committed to sustainable production is also inherent to the success of NPTA members.
NPTA is a supporter and strategic partner with American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA).
AF&PA serves to advance a sustainable U.S. pulp, paper, packaging, and wood products manufacturing industry through fact-based public policy and marketplace advocacy.
Better Practices, Better Planet 2020 – AF&PA’s sustainability initiative – is a proactive commitment to the long-term success of our industry, our communities, our environment and the nearly 900,000 men and women who make the paper and wood products vital to the lives of people around the world.
The six goals targeted within Better Practices focus on increasing paper recovery for recycling, improving energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, promoting sustainable forestry practices, improving workplace safety and reducing water use.
Additionally, NPTA partners with AF&PA to host the paper industry’s premier annual event. Paper2013 was hosted in March in Chicago, and returns to New York City for 2014.
