Deputy Director General at Confederation of European Paper Industry


Jori Ringman has a background in Economics (Helsinki University) and Business Management (Helsinki School of Economics) and broad experience in communications, public administration and politics. He also has an MSc in Environmental Decision-making (Open University, Milton Keynes).

Mr Ringman is responsible for issues relating to sustainability, environment and consumer protection, with particular concern for packaging and food contact. Environmental issues and policies are central to all CEPI’s activities, as the industry continuously works to minimise its impact across the EU and advance circular low carbon bioeconomy in the sector.

From March to September 2016 Mr Ringman had an interim role as Acting Director General for the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI). He is since then CEPI Deputy Director General. Prior to joining CEPI in February 2005, he was a civil servant at the European Commission and a political advisor in the European Parliament.
