CEPI's New Director General:
'A Remarkable Industry'
CEPI's new director general, Sylvain Lhôte, has come from outside
of pulp and paper and is already deeply impressed with this great
industry. Paper360° Senior Editor Europe Mark Rushton spoke to
him recently at CEPI's Brussels headquarters.
MARK RUSHTON

Lhôte speaking at European Paper Week.

The Confederation of European
Paper industries (CEPI) has been working
hard on behalf of the industry-particularly in lobbying on the major issues in the
European parliament-for the last 25 years.
CEPI will hold its 25th Anniversary event in
the city of Brussels in November this year.
Sylvain Lhôte joined CEPI as director general
in November last year, from a senior position
in the aluminum industry.

Paper360º

JULY/AUGUST 2017

RUSHTON: How have your first 10 months
as CEPI's director general gone?  
LHÔTE: It has been a deep dive into a new
industry for me, particularly on the forestry
side. The other areas-for instance, production in mills and factories-I am much more
familiar with, and in this context the industry
is much like many others: it is a chain, with
each link having its own specific challenges.
What I do find fascinating is the links and

loops in this industry all the way from renewable to recyclable-that is pretty unique.
My job over the last 10 months has found
me putting my feet in many different people's
shoes, from foresters to manufactures to recyclers, and in many diverse regions of Europe.
Each culture and region has its own areas of
forestry and manufacturing, and all have a specific set of opportunities and challenges. Being
DG of CEPI is certainly a varied occupation.
