European printers warn about lack of paper and permanent damage in their industry

Intergraf says that its members face rising paper costs and huge uncertainty about the supply of paper.

In view of the current scarce supply of printing and writing paper, Intergraf, the umbrella association of the European printing industry, warns about serious consequences for its industry. In a public declaration, the association has turned to paper producers, demanding a transparent dialogue and cooperation in graphic paper supply in Europe.

Intergraf appeals to national and international authorities and institutions to acknowledge that the current situation is serious and to ensure the secure supply of raw materials (primary and secondary fibres) for the production of paper.
