Dear Sir or Madam,

After a timeout of two years, we were delighted to be able to welcome you again at our traditional industry meeting in Graz which brought together approximately 500 international participants. Our wide range of topics was again rounded off by an interesting trade show for the pulp, paper and biorefinery sector. The highlight of our social events was the Conference Dinner which had an additional celebratory atmosphere as a result of the 150-year anniversary of Austropapier.


As initiators, our goal is to provide a platform for future-oriented impulses. We are confident that we reached this target again this year where we were placing a special focus on one of the biggest topics of the future…

The signs cannot be ignored or downplayed: The question today is no longer whether the climate is changing but only about whether we can combat this development to alleviate its effects. This makes climate protection the most important topic in society, politics, business and research.

We in the pulp and paper industry already placed it at the very top of our agenda years ago. Because only sustainable business is intelligent business. We have long proven that competitiveness and climate protection are compatible. We manage to do that above all through the especially integrated use of the natural resource that is wood. With great innovative strength and willingness to invest, we are preparing the way as pioneers for a sustainable "bio-economy" and are thus making a valuable contribution to climate protection. This makes us an important part of the solution in the attainment of our global climate targets. We are facing up to the associated challenges and rigorously pursuing the path that we have taken.

In this spirit, we look forward to seeing you again next year in Graz. Please already save the date 24-25 May 2023  in your calendar!
