FEFCO Board of Directors and members expressed their gratitude to Fady Gemayel for his remarkable commitment during his mandate, and his continuous efforts to highlight the benefits of corrugated cardboard as the most sustainable packaging solution for the supply chain and society.

Saverio Mayer, CEO, Smurfit Kappa Europe, was elected as Vice President for a second term, and Leopoldo Santorroman, CEO, Cartonajes Santorroman, as the second Vice President.

FEFCO will continue to be the voice of the corrugated cardboard industry, fostering its attributes to EU stakeholders and society.

“We must continue to build on the cooperation we have established over the past few years,” says Nina Iversen. “The journey to meet new imperatives for decarbonisation and increased sustainability is not without challenges. We must undertake this journey with conviction, harnessing the power of innovation to develop sustainable alternatives, reduce our carbon footprint, and mitigate the environmental impact of our operations throughout the entire value chain.”
