Agenda 2020 is Now the Alliance for
Pulp and Paper Technology Innovation
The Alliance for Pulp and Paper Technology Innovation
(APPTI) is the new name for the Agenda 2020 Tech- nology
Alliance. This 501(c)(3) research partnership chose the
recent TAPPI PEERS conference to announce its new
identity and logo on November 6.
"Our new name and logo preserve the central message of our earlier identity while
expressing the forward progress of our current work," president and executive director David Turpin told participants at the PEERS conference. "What our constituents
have valued most has been the collaboration, the focus in our industry on advancing
core technology, and the pursuit of breakthrough innovation to increase efficiency
and sustainability. Our new logo captures those points."
The new logo consists of the acronym cast in forward-leaning italics with a fluid
curve. The name preserves the strength and collaboration of the alliance concept,
as well as the long-standing focus on technology and innovation. Including "pulp
and paper" in the name establishes the industry as its continued focal point. The arc
conveys energy and action. The carefully selected shade of blue represents clean air
and water-both among objectives of efficiency and sustainability.
"The blue also suggests a hint of 'blue-sky thinking' about what our industry's
potential could be," Turpin continued. "A portion of our effort since inception has
been on identifying new sources of revenue. While our feet are firmly planted on
solid ground, we think about what could be and not just what is. That blue is there to
suggest innovation, a core value of the organization."
One thing that is not changing is the belief in partner collaboration for technology
progress. "APPTI's members and partners share the conviction that achieving major
breakthroughs requires the knowledge, skills, experience, and perspectives of all of us,"
Turpin said. "Participation and support by our government agencies helps maintain
alignment with national goals. Our universities contribute their ideas, expertise, and
insights into potential pathways to new products and processes. And our supporting
companies provide vision, experts, and investment to drive our progress."
APPTI plans its third 2017 all-members' meeting-its first under its new name-on
December 11-12 at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee,
Knoxville. Advanced registration is required. To participate as a guest, contact
David.Turpin@appti.org. Learn more at www.appti.org.
