About Us

The Paper Manufacturers Association of South Africa (PAMSA) was established in 1992 to oversee the education and training needs for the pulp and paper industry. Today, it is an industry association that represents the precompetitive interests of more than 90% of South African pulp, paper, board and tissue manufacturers.

Its advocacy and industry promotion activities span a range of issues: forestry, climate change, carbon tax, biodiversity and water stewardship, waste, energy, recycling, innovation, research and development, trade statistics, and education and training.

PAMSA seeks to give voice to the sector’s contribution to the economy, the environment and society by sharing how responsibly produced wood and paper products enrich our lives, make our jobs easier, and our world more sustainable.
