Consumer graphic paper consumption dropped by 25% in 2020 as schools and offices closed, while packaging demand rose due to increased e-commerce, which has risen by 37% in 2020. As economies try to recover, paper and packaging producers are working to keep their businesses profitable and sustainable, with over $1 billion committed to sustainability-linked bonds and more innovation in eco-friendly packaging solutions than ever.
