Our organisation has evolved over the years and has clear, well-established work and communication processes.These include numerous teams with different areas of responsibility and useful tools, such as a common web-based platform to exchange information and coordinate customer related activities. We place great emphasis on regular communication within our alliance. For example, we hold regular meetings, to exchange knowledge and experience, at our conference room in Strasbourg at the Blue Paper paper mill.
The owners of the four alliance partners meet regularly to discuss the direction of BBP with the Managing Director. Their elected spokesman is in direct contact with the Managing Director of BBP and supports him in all strategic matters.

The benchmark of the partners and the exchange of important information in this area are also maintained via a web-based platform.
