Behind the tissue: Catherine Diop

Head of Purchasing WEPA France


The idea of sustainable development is particularly close to my heart and is an important aspect in both my personal and professional life. I taught my children early on to separate waste and to follow the three Rs – reduce, reuse and recycle – before buying a new product.
By joining WEPA, I was able to continue working in an industry that is dear to me, the paper industry, where I have worked for the most part since my studies. 
The concept of sustainable development is rooted in the company’s global strategy. This is an important aspect in the discussions have with our suppliers. We are always on the lookout for ways to optimise, both in terms of the selection of purchased materials, their packaging and delivery methods.
WEPA is a family business, we have a close relationship with our colleagues and teamwork is important, both within the purchasing department and in the exchange between departments.
