Key Insights into How Forest, Paper & Packaging Manufacturers can Survive the Volatile Times


Host / Organisateur : Deloitte & Touche LLP

Like most other industries, the forest, paper and packaging (FP&P) sector has been affected by the global economic recession. To address this, Deloitte last year presented key insights into how FP&P manufacturers could survive the volatile times.

This year, we are excited to focus on the progress that has been made, and provide insights into what lies ahead. Moving forward, economic and geopolitical insights are of the essence. Understanding these views can shed light on what is expected to come. And as a sector relished with many challenges, there is still much opportunity for growth and revenue realization.

Deloitte’s business session will focus on sharing our unique perspective into how organizations can turn challenges into key areas of opportunity.

Our session will provide a unique view into how human capital, cost reduction and supply chain are the keys to success. As well, we will highlight how carbon credits, and mergers and acquisitions can be leveraged to positively impact the bottom line of an organization’s balance sheet.
