Every two years, the European Paper Recycling Awards recognize outstanding projects, initiatives, or campaigns in Europe that contribute to advancements in paper recycling and align with the region’s ambitious recycling rate goals. The 2024 edition of the awards will take place on 19 February
at the European Parliament.
The competition welcomes entries from diverse entities based in Europe, including schools, universities, NGOs, national and regional authorities, companies, and associations. Two categories, namely Innovative
Technologies and R&D, as well as Information & Education, are featured, with awards presented
to exemplary projects during the ceremony.
The event, to be hosted by MEP Susana Solís from Renew (ES), is organized by the European Paper Recycling Council (EPRC). The EPRC represents the entire paper recycling value chain across Europe
and was established as an industry self-initiative in November 2000.
Its primary purpose is to monitor progress towards achieving the paper recycling targets outlined in
the 2000 European Declaration on Paper Recycling.
