THE PENALTIES IMPOSED BY AND THEIR IMPACT

The European Union has imposed several sanctions against Russia. These have consequences for entrepreneurs doing business with this country. For example, timber from Russia and Belarus no longer complies with EUTR rules (which stop the trade in illegal timber to the EU. Timber from these countries is now classified as illegal timber). The EPV (Packaging and Pallet Industry Association) supports the imposed sanctions, but is also concerned. The Netherlands imports a lot of wood from the Eastern European region and it can therefore be expected that the loss of this volume will have an effect on the supply of wooden products such as pallets, boxes and crates.

RUSSIA - UKRAINE INVENTION AND ITS CONSEQUENCES

Yesterday, the EPV published an article about the situation in the world. “The invasion of #Russia in#Ukraine is a cause of concern to the world. Serious political-military instability of this magnitude seemed unimaginable in #Europe . Yet this is now the reality.
The #EU last weekend announced sanctions restricting trade with #Russia and #Belarus. The trade in #wood  also falls under this. #The Netherlands imports a huge volume of wood from the region #Eastern Europe and it can therefore be expected that the loss of this volume will have an effect on the #delivery  of #wooden products, such as #pallets, #boxes and #crates ", says EPV.

the power of wood


Wood is the most sustainable, environmentally friendly raw material available for packaging. The use of wooden pallets and packaging helps to protect our climate and contributes to the reputation of your company in the field of corporate social responsibility. The many benefits of wood form the basis for our communication strategy, which has been awarded the title "The Quality of Wood".


Wooden pallets and packaging can be endlessly reused, repaired and recycled. In the final phase, when wood is burned, energy is recovered. Wood is also the largest supplier of biomass. This cycle of wood is also CO2 neutral, 1 m³ of wood saves 0.8 tons of CO2 compared to alternative materials, such as plastic. There is no raw material that has the same qualifications.

The PR committee of the EPV has several communications available to convey this message clearly: Members can download these specific means of communication free of charge in the membership.

PROMOTIONAL BOOK 'THE POWER OF WOOD'
To boost the use of wooden packaging in the voyage of peoples, EPV has published a promotional booklet in which the advantages of wood compared to plastic are clearly listed.

In "The Power of Wood", wood is promoted as an infinite and sustainable resource and prejudices about wood are removed.
