Antalis strengthens its environmental commitment
Antalis has announced that it will join like-minded organisations committed to the environmental cause in supporting Cap COP 21, a series of events to help protect the environment.
The initiative, organised in the run up to the United Nations Framework convention on Climate Change conference (COP 21), includes meetings, informative events and discussion forums which will be held in the run-up to the main conference, which will take place in Paris, France in December 2015.
Commenting on the Antalis Group’s commitment to partner the initiative, Oliver Guichardon, CSR Director at Sequana, parent company of Antalis says, “Climate change is a global issue, for which we must find solutions at the local level. The paper industry is often singled out, even though it has in fact made huge efforts to protect the environment. This is one of the messages that we will communicate at Cap COP 21.”
As a partner of the Cap COP 21 event, Antalis will sit alongside companies similarly committed to the environmental cause, and before a wide panel of stakeholders aiming to lead the way in the fight against climate change.
Matthew Botfield, Environment Manager at Antalis UK, said: “This is an opportunity for us to present the many measures it takes to protect the environment, and will enable us to highlight best practices and to ensure that the voice of the paper industry is heard as it is often wrongly accused of being the main culprit of deforestation.”
The first in the series of events will be a panel discussion themed: ‘Businesses and climate change: what innovations can combat the crisis?’ on Thursday 9th April, and will draw to a close with a major European study on how climate issues are perceived by European citizens.
