statement on the U.S. paper and wood prod- ucts industry and paper recycling during the COVID-19 pandemic: “American Forest & Pa- per Association (AF&PA) members remain resilient in navigating challenges created by the ongoing pandemic. They continue to work safely and diligently in creating sustainable and innovative paper products for the circular economy. “Like all sectors of the economy, papermak- ers are dealing with challenges created by the ongoing pandemic. These include global and domestic supply chain issues, such as ocean freight bottlenecks and truck availability. “Nevertheless, notable data points emerge and one of those is in the area of paper recy- cling, which continues to be an environmental success story. In July, total paper recovery for recycling was up an impressive 8.9 percent year-to-date. In the United States, approxi- mately 80 percent of paper mills use some recycled paper fiber to make renewable prod- ucts, such as office paper, packaging and bath and tissue products. This is a testament to the consumers who are recycling these products, combined with the impressive infrastructure investments our manufacturers are making. “Our industry remains committed to serv- ing our customers worldwide, just as it has throughout the pandemic. Rest assured, your favorite paper products continue to be manu- factured 365 days a year, by a dedicated and essential workforce.” AF&PA member companies make essen- tial products from renewable and recycle re- sources, generate renewable bioenergy and are committed to continuous improvement through the industry’s sustainability initiative, Better Practices, Better Planet 2030.
