Industry leaders across 22 countries share their view on tissue making in a global market study conducted by Tietoevry, together with Fisher International, I-Plan, and Valmet.
What are tissue producers’ thoughts on their current business, their challenges and how do they view the future? How can we use those insights to find new ways and areas to improve and focus on efficiency; enable cross-border thinking and end-to-end value creation through digitalization; and support a sustainable industry future. That’s what we wanted to find out in a global market study conducted by Tietoevry, together with Fisher International, I-Plan, and Valmet where a total of 50 tissue producers globally took part in the survey.
In the next two years, nearly 70 % of respondents are planning on investing in producing green energy on-site with solar panels or wind turbines, for example. Two thirds of the respondents are investing in any equipment that helps reduce carbon emissions. Over half of the respondents are aiming to reduce their use of plastic and are changing their fuels to fossil-free options.
This study is also showcasing that the tissue industry is at a turning point, and plenty of investments, evaluations and testing must be made to find ways to keep businesses profitable, sustainable, and efficient in the future. At Valmet, we are confident that our technology solutions and wide expertise can play an important role in and we are eager to support our customers on their journey.
