THE EUROPEAN FOREST-BASED ECOSYSTEM CALLS TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR SUPPORT BY THE EUROPEAN RECOVERY PLAN AND INDUSTRIAL STRATEGY

In light of the European Commission’s expected announcement of which business ecosystems will be targeted by the European Recovery Plan and new Industrial Strategy for Europe, the partners of the forest-based sector have sent a proposal to EU Commissioner for Internal Market Thierry Breton to include the European Forest-based Industries Ecosystem as one of the ecosystems eligible for support in the plan.

“The European forest-based ecosystem has a very strong role in the European economy while also being a climate-friendly, resilient sector already oriented towards a green, sustainable economy. Its basic raw material is wood: a renewable, recyclable resource coming from sustainably managed forests in Europe. Its production processes handle this resource very efficiently, minimising waste and offering the possibility to substitute fossil materials and energy”, said Patrizio Antonicoli, Secretary General of CEI-Bois.
