pulp and paper methodology

The ACT Initiative team is glad to announce the release of the ACT Pulp and Paper methodology!

Pulp and Paper is the fourth most energy-intensive industry. According to IEA, it represents 5.6% of the industrial energy consumption. The pulp & paper sector has an important role to play in global decarbonization efforts.

The methodology rewards companies that implement low-carbon processes and use low-carbon energy, that commit to ban deforestation and that foster circular economy.

The methodology was finalized after a process of more than a year: firstly, drafting the methodology with the support of a technical working group composed of experts and stakeholders from the sector; secondly, experimenting with volunteer companies and considering feedback to improve the methodology; and finally, a quality assurance process.
