Paper From Portugal

Portuguese forests

Myth: "making paper destroys forests".
Truth: making paper means more trees are planted.
Proof: over the last century Portugal’s woodlands have grown by almost 80%.* That is more than 28,000 football pitches per year.

Today, Portuguese forests cover nearly 40% of country, thanks in good part to the Portuguese pulp and paper industry.  


The Portuguese pulp and paper industry’s active policy of developing Portugal’s woodland is supported by:

  • Tree nurseries producing on average approximately 13 million plants/year;
  • R&D teams develop new paper products committed to a greener future;
  • Investment in the latest technology;
  • A deeply felt respect for nature.
