Webinar: Addressing Human Rights Challenges in the Recycled Pulp and Paper Sector

Valued at USD 10.77 Billion in 2021, India Paper and Paperboard Packaging Market is expected to reach USD 15.69 Billion by 2027 according to recent studies. This pace of growth is due to the tectonic shifts within the waste paper market imports and exports after the 2018 Chinese regulation stopped the import of waste paper. This has opened the doors for India making it the largest player in the global paper market. 60% of the raw material used in the paper mills in India is recycled paper making it pivotal for India and brands across the globe to ensure these supply chains are sustainable not just for the environment but also for the people that make it run.

In this webinar, we bring together representatives from brands, downstream paper mills, packaging and label factories, and NGOs to have a conversation about the community wellbeing, safety, and labour rights challenges in the pulp and paper sector in India. We aim to address challenges, discuss solutions, and the push and pull factors that can improve the working conditions in this sector.

Here is the agenda for the webinar, each session followed by Q&A:

20th October 2022, 4:30 PM-6:00 PM IST
