The IP Way
International Paper manufactures and distributes a wide variety of products that make life better for billions of people around the globe. We are one of the world’s largest corporations, a company of substance. Our substance goes well beyond our size. We value character as much as capability. We do the right things, in the right way, for the right reasons. We never forget our commitment to people, to customers, or to operational excellence. Those who work for and with International Paper do so not only because of the value we provide, but because of the vision, mission and values by which we operate. We call them The IP Way.
To be one of the most respected and successful companies in the world.
To improve the world, today and for generations to come, by using renewable resources to make products people depend on every day.
Leadership. We uphold the highest ethical standards. We keep our commitments and we are accountable for all we do. We believe in diversity and inclusion, treating all people with dignity and respect, and helping one another succeed.
Results. We are passionate about results. We set stretch objectives, we embrace change, and we always consider what is best for the entire company. We are engaged and aligned in our commitment to excellence for our customers and performance for our shareowners.
Responsibility. We are committed to sustaining our world. We place the highest priority on employee health and safety, and we ensure that every phase of our supply chain, from procurement to manufacturing, distribution, sales and recycling, is carried out in a safe and responsible manner.
At International Paper, we are proud of the things we make, but the things we make are not what make us. We understand that the needs we are called to meet can and will change. But the substance of IP—who we are and how we do things—never will.
