Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd. (President: Fumio Manoshiro; hereinafter "the Company") announces Nippon Paper Group (including nine other Group companies*) will participate in TOKYO PACK 2018, one of Asia's largest general exhibitions for packaging, which will be held on October 2 until 5 at Tokyo Big Sight.

1. Concept: Kaminnovation! Let Paper Do What It Can Do.

Packages become unnecessary after their role for content protection, and they are discarded. For that reason, packaging manufacturers have been asked in recent years to give greater consideration to the environment throughout their value chain, which covers packaging material procurement, package manufacture, sales, use, sorting, collection, recycling and disposal.
Nippon Paper Group will introduce what the Nippon Paper Group views as "Packaging for All Our Tomorrows" from a fresh perspective, including functions previously unavailable with paper and ways for using packages for living, using as its base paper, a recycled material made from wood , a renewable resource.
