WASHINGTON — The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) Board of Directors today announced advocacy priorities to pursue this year.
U.S. pulp and paper manufacturers are proven partners in the circular economy whose members’ sustainability successes can inform collaborative efforts.
This is an industry leading on achievable solutions to address environmental challenges while promoting economic growth and job creation.
“Sustainability leadership is the foundation of the paper and wood products industry,” said AF&PA President and CEO Heidi Brock. “We manufacture sustainable products from renewable resources that are used every day by millions of Americans. To that end, we support policies that help our industry grow, create U.S. jobs, and foster global market competition so we can continue to provide essential products.”
AF&PA’s 2023 Advocacy Priorities include:
- Energy and The Environment
- Paper Recycling
- Product Stewardship
- Business Impact
- Marketplace Sustainability
“This is an industry that stands ready to advance key policy priorities on sustainability, energy and the environment, and recycling in the year ahead,” said AF&PA Board Chair Brian McPheely, Global CEO at Pratt Industries. “We pride ourselves on bringing innovative solutions and making meaningful contributions to the circular economy in communities across the United States. We have an impressive track record of leadership across several issues.”
