Sber has acted as the general partner of the online forum PAP-FOR, which united pulp, paper, and forestry industry players on November 24–27.

At the forum, event participants discussed the industry’s development and, for the first time, PAP-FOR Awards for pulp and paper mills, manufacturers, and suppliers of equipment and services for the pulp and paper industry were handed out.

Sber presented industry-specific solutions for business operations designed by the bank and its ecosystem, spoke about exportation support, lending principles, and the ESG agenda, which is growing more and more important for the global and domestic economy.

Sber adheres to an industry-specific approach to business management, which positions us to offer our clients customized offerings. We have a positive outlook on the industry’s future, except for certain types of products like newsprint, and are ready to invest in the modernization of current production facilities and the creation of new ones. Today, the pulp and paper industry is undergoing a new stage of development: digital transformation, AI adoption, and ESG compliance are more than just the latest trends. They are vital stages in the transformation of the industry. Sber pays great attention to the green agenda and responsible investing. We take ESG factors into account when making lending decisions and have the expertise and resources to help clients develop ESG strategies and sustainability practices.
