Keep Me Posted EU
The European Union is promoting the digital economy for economic modernisation and for generating sustainable growth and jobs. Digital communication offers clear advantages in terms of speed, cost, and flexibility. Member companies of the paper value chain fully adopt and benefit from digital technologies.
But there is legitimate concern that the freedom of senders and recipients of paper based communication is being affected by policies that try to push digital communication (eg e-invoicing and e-procurement) not only on its own merits, but by actively suppressing paper communication.
As part of its efforts to protect the rights of consumers to receive paper based communication, FEPE was one of the founders of Keep Me Posted EU. This campaign promotes the citizen’s right to choose how they receive important information such as tax forms, election documents and bills and statements from service providers without disadvantage. The campaign is inspired by the UK campaign, Keep Me Posted UK and is directed towards the European Institutions. It gathers the support of consumer groups and charities which represent citizens who may be disadvantaged by a lack of choice or simply do not agree with it.
