Supplier Diversity is a Value-added Strategy

Supplier diversity is a proactive business process of sourcing products and services from diverse business owners to provide them with equal access to purchasing and sourcing opportunities. At International Paper, supplier diversity is a value-added strategy that ensures quality products and services to our customers.

  • Leadership Support

    Supplier Diversity is an integral part of International Paper. Supplier Diversity is also an important part of our Principles of Excellence.

  • About Our Program

    Our mission statement reinforces our commitment to be the preferred partner for those who value supplier diversity, maximize procurement opportunities for diverse suppliers and provide customer satisfaction.

  • Supplier Registration

    Diverse suppliers with products and services that are potentially suitable for International Paper are asked to register at our Supplier Diversity Registration Portal. Registration in our database enables us to access your business profile information and data regarding your company’s capabilities and experience. Please note that registration does not guarantee future business.

  • Tier 2 Reporting

    The growth and development of diverse firms is a commitment that we consider vital to our continued success. Support from all of our first-tier suppliers is necessary for us to achieve our goals and objectives. Therefore, International Paper requires key suppliers to include diverse suppliers in their supplier chains. This strategy serves to enhance, not replace existing efforts aimed at increasing meaningful opportunities for diverse-owned firms to participate as first tier suppliers.
